PIAC is frequently asked to participate in industry, government or standards-making committees that must determine the appropriate policy and operational approach to consumer issues that arise in the context of the various important public services, industries and market functions that PIAC attempts to cover. Sometimes, we simply do not have the time and resources to participate in these committees or public consultations. It would be helpful if we knew of individuals with experience in issues of consumer protection or government regulation that could assist in providing the appropriate feedback on behalf of ordinary consumers in the policy making process.
If you are interested, please send us an email at piac@piac.ca telling us what issues you are interested and/or experienced in, your availability for volunteer service and a brief description of the basis for your interest/experience in the area.
Please note, that you may not be immediately contacted for a task when you send an email. We will, however, have your expression of interest on file to be accessed when an appropriate request for input comes up that PIAC staff cannot fulfill.
