News release

Until August 23, an RCMP team assigned to the Merchants against Counterfeiting program is offering a free workshop to raise awareness about this issue. This is an excellent opportunity for merchants and professionals in Quebec to learn more about the security features of polymer and other Canadian banknotes.

Training to prevent and detect counterfeit currency

Our team visits businesses and makes 30-minute presentations on the prevention measures and resources available to detect and report counterfeit cash. The team also holds information booths at different public events, such as fairs, festivals and markets. Informational material is handed out to participants and visitors.

The training was designed in collaboration with financial integrity investigators from the RCMP in Montreal, the Bank of Canada and the U.S. Secret Service.
