Consumer Alert - EM ROAD SEAL PAVING

Released on September 4, 2018


The Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan (FCAA) recently received information that EM ROAD SEAL PAVING may be approaching Saskatchewan residents regarding driveway repairs and paving.

In Saskatchewan, door-to-door salespersons and companies are required to be licensed under The Direct Sellers Act.  EM ROAD SEAL PAVING does not have a direct sellers licence.
  • FCAA recommends that consumers take steps to protect themselves when entering into transactions with door-to-door salespersons, including the following:
    • Check the validity of a direct seller licence number on FCAA411 (http://fcaa.gov.sk.ca/fcaa411).
    • Get everything in writing and create a formal contract with clear expectations of the work to be done and the time frame that the work has to be completed in.
    • Do not hand over a blank cheque.
If you have been contacted by EM ROAD SEAL PAVING or any unlicensed door-to-door salespersons offering to make driveway repairs, please contact the Consumer Protection Division at consumerprotection@gov.sk.ca or toll free at 1-877-880-5550.
