Looking to the future, we are planning a major project that will provide newcomers to Saskatchewan with consumer education via workshops and written material. We have been researching the needs of newcomers in order to provide them with successful and relevant information and will be involved in both the proposal development and implementation.
We support the belief in universal consumer rights to safety, to be informed, to choose, to be heard, to consumer education and to redress. These rights provide the benchmark for our positions on legislation, regulations and performance of the marketplace. Rights & Responsibilites
