Consumer Policy Research Database

The Consumer Policy Research Database is a collection of Canadian research references on consumer related topics. Its objective is to increase knowledge transfer across the consumer policy research community.

The Database contains references for consumer research documents published since 1998 by Canadian university researchers, governments and non-profit organizations. Each reference contains the title, author(s), date and language of publication, contact information, and an abstract. Abstracts are available in both English and French. Some source documents are only available in their original language. The Database also contains full-text links when available.

Views expressed in these papers do not necessarily represent those of the Office of Consumer Affairs or Industry Canada.
