BPCP Authority Act
The Business Practices and Consumer Protection Authority Act established the Business Practices and Consumer Protection Authority as a not for profit corporation without share capital and consisting of a board of directors. It provides for the governance of the organization.
Now doing business as Consumer Protection BC, we operate at arm's length from government and are responsible for a range of licensing, inspection, investigation and enforcement activities, overseeing functions that used to be carried out by the Consumer Services Division of the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General.
The Act states that the purposes of our organization are to:
- Deliver consumer protection services throughout British Columbia;
- Promote fairness and understanding in the marketplace; and
- Administer in the public interest any Act, the administration of which is delegated to us.
