Statement of Cancellation Rights

  • Statement of Cancellation Rights (subsections 6(3-4) regulation 9 and appendix)

    All direct sales contracts must contain the legislatively pre-determined written buyer’s right to cancel notice. The entire wording is set by regulation and cannot be changed except for the writing with the brackets; in those brackets select the appropriate information. The heading of the statement must be in 12pt font; the rest of the statement must be at least 10 pt font.

    Where a statement of cancellation rights mentioned above is not located on the first page of the written contract, there is to be a notice on the first page of the written contract in not less than 12-point bold type, directing the purchaser to the location of the statement of cancellation rights.

    Where a statement of cancellation rights is located in a separate document from the written contract, it is to include the business name, business address, telephone number and, where applicable, facsimile number of the vendor.

    Where a written contract is not required, the direct seller shall provide in a document a statement of cancellation rights, and the document is to include the name, business address, telephone number and facsimile number, where applicable, of the vendor.
