Consumer Awareness

Canadian Consumer Handbook
The Canadian Consumer Handbook is intended to help you become a better-informed and more confident consumer. The Handbook offers information on topics such as contracts, housing and home renovations, identity theft, being an environmentally responsible consumer, and much more. It is a useful reference for consumers in the marketplace and provides assistance to consumer affairs professionals who offer information to their clients. An interactive version of this handbook is also available.

The focus of this site is to help Canadians shop online by empowering Canadian consumers with information that they normally wouldn't have access to, including in-depth merchant and price analysis for millions of products. All of their tools are free and do not require registration to use.

Ministry of Government and Consumer Services
MGCS is responsible for protecting consumers. This site helps to keep you informed about frauds and scams and to increase your knowledge of the marketplace.
