The Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority is exploring whether The Film and Video Classification Act, 2016 requires updating, and considering how existing legal requirements could be modernized to better reflect today's film market. A key factor to this review is reducing unnecessary and duplicative burden for business, while ensuring consumers can make informed viewing choices.

Consumer Protection Consultation - Direct Sellers Act Consultations

Public feedback wanted for Door to Door Sales 

The Government of Saskatchewan is seeking input from consumers, stakeholders, business people and interested citizens about the repeal and replacement of the Direct Sellers Act. The Act regulates individuals who solicit the purchase of goods and/or services door to door or by telephone.

Key issues for discussion are:

  • who should be considered a direct seller;
  • whether the current exemptions from licensing should be maintained;
  • whether there should be specific provisions relating to gas retailers who direct sell to consumers;
  • what activities should be included as direct selling;
  • Cancellation rights;
  • and more.
