Peddlers and Solicitors

Peddliers and Solicitors

Throughout the year door-to-door peddling, soliciting and canvassing raises questions from Blaine residents. While most of these activities are regulated by the City they cannot be prohibited entirely. A canvasser, for example, may go door-to-door without a permit from the City. A canvasser may be a person asking for signatures on a petition, requesting
support for a political candidate or position, seeking donations for a religious organization or fundraising for a high school booster club.

All peddlers and solicitors are: 

  • Required to obtain a permit from the City
  • Required to carry their City-issued photo ID card with them and present upon request
  • Restricted to soliciting between the hours of 9AM and 7PM and are not allowed to solicit on Sundays and State or National holidays

For your safety, residents should:

  • Not let a peddler, solicitor, or canvasser into your home, even if they have a permit
  • Direct complaints about business practices to the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota at www.bbb.org or 651-699-1111
  • Check contractor references at www.dli.mn.gov
  • Help in filing insurance claims can be found at www.mn.gov/commerce
  • Report suspicious persons or activities to the Police Department at 763-427-1212 or by dialing 911

Please join with us in making our neighborhoods safer by promptly reporting unlicensed solicitors or any other suspicious activity.
