The provincial government is seeking input from consumers before it updates rules governing home renovations.
Consumer Protection Minister Ron Lemieux said the government is seeking feedback from Manitobans on issues such as the accuracy of home-improvement cost estimates, renovation contracts and timelines, as well as any problems homeowners may have experienced.
"We want to ensure families are treated fairly, receive clear estimates and pay only what they had expected to pay," Lemieux said this morning in announcing the public consultations.
Manitobans can share their home renovation and repair experiences online at www.gov.mb.ca/cca/cpo, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the Consumer Protection Office, 302-258 Portage Ave., Winnipeg, R3C 0B6. The deadline for providing the feedback is March 31.
