Sometime in 2004, the Ontario government is likely to proclaim in force the Consumer Protection Act 2002, a consolidation of six core consumer protection statutes into an omnibus statute that provides significant new protection to consumers. Subject to limited exceptions, the Act will apply to all consumer transactions where the consumer is located in Ontario. The Act includes provisions specifically directed to Internet consumer transactions. Suppliers that engage in Internet transactions with consumers in Ontario should monitor the progress of the Act and its regulations and, if necessary, modify their business processes and documents to comply with the requirements of the Act.
