The BBB is not a consumer advocate which believes the consumer is always right; conversely it is also not the “Champion of the business world” believing that business can do no wrong.

BBB are self-governing organizations established by the local business community. Each has a Board of Directors made up of local business leaders. A Bureau is supported entirely by the membership fees of area businesses and branches of national business.

Your BBBcommitted to the principle that fair dealing is good business for both the buyer and the seller, and that the majority of buyers and sellers are honest and responsible. The work of your Bureau is concentrated on two equally important facets:

Self-regulating procedures through which the business field can discipline unfair trade practices.

The collection and dispersal of information to buyers to help them make sound buying decisions.

The CF family lifestyle provides many challenges and growth opportunities as families often face separation due to duty requirements. In addition, frequent relocation to new CF Bases around the country continues to make our families very mobile. Whether it is a large purchase of a home on posting, renovations to your home before moving or unscheduled car maintenance while your CF member/partner is deployed, you have all felt at one time or another “taken advantage of” or “out of our element” In partnership with the MFRC the BBB is proud to offer CF families access to our resource to assist you in successfully managing the challenges of being a consumer in our buyer beware world. Through the MFRC web site CF families can access a direct line to BBB Manitoba services, designed specifically to address the needs of our CF community.
