New Brunswick's Consumer Products Warranty Legislation

New Brunswick's Consumer Product Warranty and Liability Act protects buyers (and other consumers) of consumer goods through warranties and remedies designed to fit their reasonable expectations.

This website features three separate guides to the legislation -- one for consumers, another for businesses, and another for the legal profession. The website was created by Karl Dore, who also was the principal architect of the Consumer Product Warranty and Liability Act. It is intended to provide information on the legislation, not to give or offer individual legal advice. For further assistance contact New Brunswick's Consumer Affairs Branch or one of the Rentalsman Offices.
