Written by Scott McBride, President and CEO of Consumer Protection BC

It’s hard to believe that half of 2011 is almost over.  Nonetheless, it is June and the Leadership Team at Consumer Protection BC is turning its attention to 2012.  As an organization, we have been working on achieving the goals, objectives, and strategies of our 2011-2013 Business Plan over the past six months.   With the support of our Board of Directors, we’ve decided that now is a good time to review Consumer Protection BC’s current Vision, Mission, and Values to ensure they assist us on our journey and help to clarify our destination.

Do you know that most adult Canadians have a credit report?  In fact, most of us have 2 – one with each of the 2 major credit reporting agencies in Canada.  The information in your credit report can be very important to you in terms of determining whether or not you can get credit and what the cost of that credit would be.  It could also be used to determine if you get a job or an apartment.
