Our enforcement tools - Consumer Protection BC

Our enforcement tools

The Business Practices and Consumer Protection Act, Cremation, Interment and Funeral Services Act and, the Motion Picture Act provide a variety of enforcement tools that we can use if a violation occurs under these laws. If a business doesn’t voluntarily comply with their obligations, we use these tools in a progressive manner depending on the severity, depth or repetitive nature of the violation.

We publish the results of our enforcement actions online. Depending on the severity of the issue and if it’s in the public interest, we may also share information more publicly (for example in a media release).
