Door-to-Door Canvassing and Sales Guidelines

Door-to-door sales and canvassing will be permitted as of July 21. While permissible following the guidelines, salespeople/canvassers must understand that the public may not be comfortable with this type of activity at their place of residence.

  • No door-to-door activities should occur if salesperson/canvasser is ill or experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms. Two metres of distance must be maintained at all times. No direct contact between canvassers and public, including handing of fliers, papers, pens, etc. Fliers may be placed in mail boxes ahead of time.
  • Staff/volunteers should be provided with their own pen/pencil and limit sharing items or equipment with colleagues and the public. If items must be shared, they should be cleaned or disinfected between clients (i.e. payment terminals).
  • Whenever possible, use contactless forms of payment.
  • Charitable organizations accepting cash donations should consider using an enclosed container with a slot to avoid handling cash.
  • Consider the needs of staff and volunteers who may be part of a vulnerable group and may be less able to protect themselves from potential risk. It is recommended that older staff or volunteers, or those with a weakened immune system, wear a procedure/surgical mask.
  • If canvassing in groups, only those from the same household should share vehicles. See Transportation Guidelines.
  • Ensure staff/volunteers are practising proper hand hygiene and coughing/sneezing etiquette, including:
    • Using hand sanitizer when hands are not visibly dirty and handwashing isn't available.
    • Only using hand sanitizer approved by Health Canada (DIN or NPN number).
    • Avoiding touching your face, mouth, nose and eyes.
    • Coughing or sneezing into a tissue, then immediately disposing of the tissue and wash hands. If a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow, not your hands.
  • Encourage online or phone canvassing and sales.

Collection of Donated Items

  • Organizations doing collections (such as bottle/food drives; household donation pickups) should consider advising neighbourhoods of the drives in advance through fliers, newsletters and/or social media and online advertising. Collection of donations must be through curbside pickup where possible.
  • If door-to-door collection is being conducted by groups, individuals from the same household should occupy the same vehicle. If this is not possible, individuals should wear non-medical masks (e.g. cloth or other materials) or surgical/procedure masks.
  • Anyone who is unwell or symptomatic must remain home.
  • Observe appropriate physical distancing practices between persons who need to leave the vehicle to collect donations.
  • Clean and disinfect vehicle following activities.
  • Practise frequent hand hygiene throughout the collection period with hand sanitizer and wash hands upon completion.
  • Food and beverage consumption during collection/sorting is discouraged. If food and beverages are consumed, individuals must wash hands or use hand sanitizer prior to consuming.
  • Collectors may wish to wear disposable gloves while collecting donations. Sanitize hands between glove changes.
  • Maintain two-metre physical distancing when sorting donations.
  • Sorting area for collected materials must be cleaned and disinfected after use.
