Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority has closed its offices as a preventative COVID-19 measure. Read our COVID-19 alert to see what changes have been made in response to the crisis.
FCAA is Saskatchewan’s financial and consumer marketplace regulator.
FCAA has been advised that price gouging activity is occurring in the Saskatchewan marketplace because of the COVID-19 pandemic. If you observe such practices, inform us, so that we can take steps to address this activity. If left unchecked, unfair practices can lead to seriously disruptive marketplace conditions and consumer harm.
Since we can all assist to make the marketplace fair and equitable, consumers who know of, or observe grossly excessive prices either in advertisements or before, during or after a transaction, are encouraged to do one or more of the following:
1. Call our tip hotline at 1-877-880-5550 to provide information.
2. File a tip
3. Register an on-line complaint with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
4. If possible, register a complaint with the business.
5. Review the Grossly Excessive Prices "Price Gouging" guidance.
