Going away on vacation?

Prevent theft and vandalism at home with these prevention tips.

  • Ask someone to pick up your mail, newspapers and flyers. Have Canada Post hold back your mail. And don't forget to temporarily suspend your newspaper delivery.
  • Install a programmable timer for inside and outside lights, if possible.
  • Ask someone to mow the lawn during the summer or shovel the snow from your entrance and driveway during the winter.
  • Don't leave a message on your voice-mail or on social media saying how long you'll be away.
  • If possible, leave a vehicle in the driveway and ask someone to move it from time to time.
