Introduction to Consumer Law Essentials
When you buy something or hire someone to perform a service, you are a consumer. Knowing how to protect yourself as a consumer can help you save money and avoid problems. Consumer Law Essentials explains your rights for common consumer purchases and contracts, as well as the steps you can take when something goes wrong.
At People's Law School, we believe accurate, plain English information can help people take action to work out their legal problems. This publication explains in a general way the law that applies in British Columbia. It is not intended as legal advice. For help with a specific legal problem, contact a legal professional. Some sources of legal help are highlighted in the "Where to Get Help" section.
We have tried to use clear language throughout. See the "Glossary" section for definitions of key legal terms, which are also bolded in the text.
Visit the People’s Law School website at www.peopleslawschool.ca for more in-depth coverage of your rights as a consumer and how to deal with legal problems.
