Corps

In an effort to combat consumer debt overload, Bill 24 provides for new credit-related measures, which the Québec Ombudsman has thoroughly reviewed. In a letter to the Minister of Justice, the Québec Ombudsperson expressed her support for the bill, noting that this eagerly awaited and appropriate legislation would have positive effects for consumers, whose overall debts are rising to worrying levels.
