The UCCM Anishnaabe Police Service has been notified from community members that are receiving calls from “Revenue Canada Hot Line ” and other companies indicating that they owe them funds. This is a warning to community members and businesses about new and often sophisticated scams that prey on vulnerable persons, utility users and consumers.
Financial crimes and fraud are criminal activities that victimize individuals from all walks of life. Police across Ontario have become increasingly aware of very sophisticated, well-organized financial criminal activities that prey on individual’s lack of understanding about their rights when it comes to their financial matters. If you feel uneasy about someone calling you about owing monies to Revenue Canada Hot Line or from a 1-450-876-2192 Ottawa phone number, don’t be fooled. Call for help.
Community members can call the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to confirm the authenticity of the CRA telephone number or report incidents of suspected fraud to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
The CRA takes these tax fraud scams very seriously and actively warn Canadians about them using the CRA’s name, especially during tax filing season.
If you want to confirm the authenticity of a CRA telephone number – call the CRA at 1-800-959-8281.

The UCCM Anishnaabe Police Service is entering into a new planning period and work is starting on a strategic plan for the next 3 years.
We have contracted Community Based Research to lead community consultations on our behalf in each of the communities. These sessions are for the public at large. We will also host focus group circles with key stakeholders, partners and leadership.
We have constructed our planning around the vision of the service. Our vision states “The UCCM Anishnaabe Police will be a partner in community wellness by providing proactive, culturally sensitive, and innovative service while respecting existing laws, customs and traditions.”
We are actively encouraging all band members within our territory to participate – come share your thoughts, opinions and idea’s on how we can grow to meet the needs of the community as we move forward.
General inquires can be directed to Taylor Sayers, Director of Corporate Services during regular business hours at 705-377-7135.
Inquiries specific to a community consultation please see the community contact info.
