Section 61 of the CPA sets out the disclosure required in advertising credit agreements.
When the advertisement offers financing to purchase a vehicle and discloses the interest rate or the amount of the payment by the borrower, the following must also be disclosed:
- Annual percentage rate (must be displayed as prominently as the most prominent of the interest rate or monthly payments).
- Length of the term.
- Cash price of the vehicle (if applicable) and the “cost of borrowing,” unless:
- The only element of cost of borrowing is interest.
- The advertisement is broadcast on radio or television, displayed on a billboard or bus board, or made through any other medium with similar time or space limitations.
