Consumer Beware List (CBL)

The CBL list is maintained by the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services and includes the names of businesses that have been charged or convicted under consumer protection laws, or other acts administered by the ministry, such as the Payday Loans Act. It also identifies businesses that failed to take action after being notified twice by the ministry about a consumer complaint.

Under the Consumer Protection Act, 2002, each posting on the Consumer Beware List (CBL) may remain for a maximum of 27 months.
