Nova Scotia. Consumer Services Bureau

The Consumer Services Act of 1968 established the Consumer Services Bureau to initiate, recommend or undertake programs designed to promote and protect the interests of consumers. In 1973 the operations of the bureau were expanded and provision made for the appointment of a minister separate from the Provincial Secretary. In 1975 the bureau was replaced by the Department of Consumer Affairs. The department's core responsibilities were consumer and commercial relations, financial institutions and revenue, residential tenancies and condominiums, rent review, and cinemas and amusements. In 1992 the department was combined with Housing to form the Department of Housing and Consumer Affairs.

Notes: Authority record based on Statutes of Nova Scotia: 1968 c. 5, 1973 (2nd) c. 5, 1975 c. 62, 1992 c. 14.
