Fraud Prevention Forum

Chaired by the Competition Bureau, the Fraud Prevention Forum is a concerned group of more than 100 private sector firms, consumer and volunteer groups, government agencies and law enforcement organizations, who are committed to fighting fraud aimed at consumers and businesses. Through its partners, the Forum works to prevent Canadians from becoming victims of fraud by educating them on how to recognize, reject and report it.

Since 2004, the Forum has been organizing Fraud Prevention Month campaigns to increase awareness of fraud and promote confidence in the marketplace.

Membership in the Forum has grown considerably over the years. At the initial launch in 2004, there were 22 members. Today, there are more than 140 members. A list of partners is available for consultation. If becoming a partner in the fight against fraud is of interest to your organization, please contact the Competition Bureau or any of the partners listed for further information.

International model

The Fraud Prevention Forum model has been adopted around the world. Twenty-nine countries, including the U.S., Australia, England, Chile and Japan, host Fraud Prevention Month activities.
