The Consumer Protection Act (CPA) applies to most Ontario businesses including car dealerships. Under the CPA there are two types of unfair business practices: false, misleading or deceptive representations; and unconscionable representations. Consumers who face an unfair business practice may be entitled to cancellation of their contract for up to one year from the date of contract signing.
False, Misleading or Deceptive Practices:
Any consumer can fall victim to an unfair business practice. However there are those who are more vulnerable, and can fall victim to an unconscionable deal.
