Abstract

The central role that advertising plays in today's economy makes the con trol of misleading advertising central to any consumer protection scheme. Misleading advertising is controlled both through legal measures and extralegal organizations such as the Canadian Advertising Advisory Board. The writer of this article details existing legislation in this area, dealing particu larly with sections 33C and 33D of the Combines Investigation Act, and con siders the extent to which these laws, together with the extra-legal organiza tions, can successfully suppress false and misleading advertising.
