Canadian consumer handbook

That's the title of my Slaw post for today.  It reads as follows: Industry Canada has published a new version of its Canadian Consumer Handbook. It is actually quite a good summary of things that the average consumer should know, including how to complain to a vendor, various scams to be aware of, cellphones, charities, collection agencies, fraud, digital TV, door to door sales, gift cards, misleading advertising, telemarketing and travel. It also has a long list of contact information for various organizations.

Lawyers might find it useful to share with clients having those particular issues, and as a resource for contact information.
