Recent Legislative and Judicial Trends in Consumer Credit in Canada
AbstractThe use of consumer credit on a large scale has become very widespread in Canada since World War II. Until recently there was only a small body of legislative and judicial law for the protection of the consumer in his dealings with credit grantors. However, this decade has seen the enactment of a large number of statutes for the protection of the consumer in his credit dealings. The writer analyses these new statutes as well as some of the recent judicial decisions in the field.
