New Webpage Helps Consumers Make Informed Decisions
The Honourable Sherry Gambin-Walsh, Minister of Service NL, today announced the department’s new Consumer Advisories and Alerts webpage that provides a consolidation of information for consumers interested in bad business practices, public advisories, consumer alerts and consumer product recalls.
The updated webpage is easy to navigate, giving consumers’ quick access to information to help them make informed choices and protect their health. The webpage will be reviewed and updated regularly to provide additional information and to ensure consumers have access to the most current notifications. The page can be accessed at www.servicenl.gov.nl.ca/advisories/index.html.
This initiative delivers on commitments in The Way Forward to enhance consumer protection. The Way Forward outlines all actions the Provincial Government is taking to achieve a strong, diversified province with a high standard of living, and can be viewed at thewayforward.gov.nl.ca.
“Informed decision making is key to protecting the interests of consumers in Newfoundland and Labrador. Our goal is to simplify the process by providing a broad range of information in one, easy to find, location. This initiative was a commitment in my mandate letter from the Premier and I am pleased to say that it has been fulfilled.”
