Loss Prevention

Whether it is dealing with robbery, aggressive people, employee theft, electronic crime, or credit card, financial and data fraud, every retailer can protect their profits through proactively ensuring they have the best protective strategies in place.

Retail Council of Canada offers retail-specific resources for loss prevention, operations, and IT/data professionals, HR executives, audit practitioners and privacy lawyers to learn best practices, share ideas and network.

RCC ALERT: Be on the lookout for gift card scams

Retailers need to be on the lookout for potential gift card scams. Before selling gift cards, your teams should make sure the packaging is intact and that the PIN is not exposed. If a tampered card is spotted, it should NOT be sold. Gift card fraud should be reported to your local police agency, or if you believe you have been victimized, to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.


Loss Prevention Advisory Council

The LP Advisory Committee is open to senior loss prevention personnel from RCC member companies. The objective of the committee is to provide a forum for Loss Prevention, Asset Protection and Risk Management leaders from across Canada to discuss challenges within the industry and collaborate on issues facing retailers. The Advisory Committee will identify trends, insights, and provide solutions regarding matters of risk within the areas of Loss Prevention and Risk Management to establish Key Objectives and core activities focused on providing solutions and sharing best practices.

The Committee has identified three critical issues/trends that are common to all retailers across Canada and have established the following Strategic Objectives for 2022:

  1. Increase of workplace violence, arson, and property crime
  2. Collaboration with Police, Justice, and government
  3. Organized Retail Crime

The committee convenes every two months through virtual meetings and during the annual LP Conference.
