Ontario Proposes Amendments to Gift Card Rules to Clarify Scope
On January 19, 2018, the Government of Ontario issued a proposal to amend existing gift card rules under the Consumer Protection Act, 2002 (Ontario). The existing gift card rules, among other things, prescribe certain disclosure requirements and impose limitations on fees and expiry dates. The proposed amendments are intended to clarify the scope of such rules and follow the ban of on expiry of points in Ontario that came into force on January 1, 2018 as discussed on this blog. Ana Badour provides an overview of the proposal here.
