Albertans recognized for consumer protection work
The Alberta government is honouring four individuals and five organizations for their efforts to protect consumers and inform them about their rights.
Recipients of the seventh Alberta Consumer Champion Awards are being recognized for a variety of accomplishments, from educating landlords and tenants to teaching young Albertans how to manage their money.
“I am a firm believer that one of the most effective ways to protect consumers is through education.
It’s about making sure consumers know they have the power to make informed choices,” said Manmeet S. Bhullar, Minister of Service Alberta. “These Albertans are real champions who have gone above and beyond to educate consumers and promote a fair marketplace in our province.”
The Alberta Consumer Champion Awards are given in recognition of outstanding efforts by individuals, organizations, businesses and media who make consumer protection and awareness a priority. The awards also include a category for youth age 15 to 18. This award is given for poster and research projects on a consumer topic relevant to youth.
Albertans can find more information on the awards and consumer protection by visiting Service Alberta’s website.
