B.C. government moves to impose consumer protection laws

May 16, 2022

The British Columbia government has launched a public survey to address consumer purchasing habits (including eCommerce) and possible impacts on vulnerable populations. The survey will focus on individual consumers buying products or services from businesses for personal, family or household use.

The survey covers the following topics: purchasing and contract issues; motor-dealer sales, leases and financing; and specific types of credit-related products and services, such as fraud alerts and credit-counselling services. The next step will be stakeholder consultations in Fall 2022 to discuss the survey results and next steps.
