The Consumers Council of Canada is working to represent Canadian consumers, alone and in concert with the Canadian Consumer Initiative, concerning electronic payments and electronic funds transfer, a rapidly changing area of service to consumers. The Council is active in representing consumers within the Canadian Payments Association. It is currently seeking to obtain consumer representation before the currently active Payments System Review Task Force, established by the federal government. The Council is concerned that consumer perspective representation and research should form part of the work of the task force. The Council has developed a joint statement of principles with other members of the Canadian Consumer Initiative to help guide its representation of consumers, which is now published in the Issues Engagement section of the Council’s website.
