Did you know? Consumers have rights to reconsider and cancel their purchase, all covered by a specific act in B.C.

In B.C. there is a Business Practices and Consumer Protection Act, and chances are as a consumer you have no idea this exists and how much it could help you.

Whether you own a business or are making a purchase at a store, the Consumer Protection Act can come into play.  However, in Tanvir Gill’s story she needed a different kind of protection when her phone rang. She tells a hilarious story about a recent Christmas purchase.

This act even discusses the process of debt collectors and how heavily regulated they are and the practice of debt collection is in B.C.
