Consumer Policy Research Database

The Consumer Policy Research Database (CPRD) is a collection of Canadian research references on consumer-related topics. Its objective is to increase knowledge transfer across the consumer policy research community.

The CPRD contains references to past consumer research documents dating back to 1998 and were produced by Canadian university researchers, governments and non-profit organizations. Each reference contains the title, author(s), date and language of publication, contact information, and an abstract. Abstracts are available in both English and French. The Database also contains full-text links when available.

Please note: Some documents are only available in the original language of publication.

Views expressed in these papers do not necessarily represent those of the Office of Consumer Affairs, Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada or Government of Canada.
