About the Ministry

Every day, the work of the Ministry of Consumer Services benefits the lives of all Ontarians. That's because consumers and businesses purchase and sell millions of products – including motor vehicles, travel services, new homes, electrical products, funeral services, stuffed toys and Ontario wines.

In addition, the Ministry, through the Ontario Film Review Board, classifies movies, videos, DVDs, VCDs and video games before screening or distribution in Ontario.

The Ministry is here to educate, protect and serve Ontario consumers by ensuring a fair, safe and informed marketplace. We are dedicated to providing modern information services, as well as regulatory practices that serve the interests of Ontarians while contributing to a competitive economy.
