Your Legal Rights Webinars

  1. Recorded on April 6, 2016 - Crime victims have the right to be involved in the sentence that is imposed on the offender whose crime affected their life. When does a woman survivor of sexual assault or intimate partner violence get to prepare a Victim Impact Statement? What can she say in it? And who can help her prepare it? This webinar in the Family Law Education for Women (FLEW) series, explains what's new about Victim Impact Statements. It is presented by Tamar Witelson, METRAC's Legal Director, who is joined by Sarah Marshall, a manager in the Victim/Witness Assistance Program.

  3. Recorded on February 29, 2016 - Your charge cards are maxed out, the collection agencies keep calling, and your income is being garnished -- you need help before you sink beneath a growing pile of bills. Both credit counselling agencies and debt settlement services companies promise to help you to manage your debt repayment and get you back on your feet financially. Unfortunately, not everyone who offers to assist with your bills and credit issues has your best interests at heart. In this webinar we look at the difference between nonprofit credit counselling agencies and for-profit debt settlement companies, and explain how each type of service works to help you repay your debts. We also look at important new protections for consumers under Ontario's Collection and Debt Settlement Services Act law.

  4. Recorded on February 8, 2016 - While you may not find a salesperson knocking at your door with the latest and greatest vacuum cleaner anymore, the sometimes unsavoury world of door-to-door sales is still alive and well. Some of the most outrageous claims and trickery in the door-to-door world now relate to water heater sales. Problems with door-to-door water heaters sales and rentals have become such a big problem that Ontario now has special protections just for them. In this webinar we look at common sales tactics, unfair business practices, and a consumer's rights with regard to door-to-door sales, including the requirements for valid contracts, required disclosures, and the cancellation rights that are unique to water heaters. Finally, we learn about the important protections that the Ontario Consumer Protection Act, 2002, contains for consumers in these situations and how to exercise those rights.

  5. Recorded on February 1, 2016 - This webinar looks at cell phone and other wireless services agreements in light of the new rights and protections that consumers have under the Ontario Wireless Services Act and the federal Wireless Code. These new laws include important protections related to the length of service agreements, cancellation fees, roaming charges, and other issues that directly impact consumers. We look at the legislation and the agencies that govern the industry, what rights consumers have, and the remedies available to them if their service agreement does not comply with the law.
