The Consumers’ Association of Canada founded in 1947 is an independent, not-for-profit, volunteer-based, Canadian charitable organization. Based nationally in Ottawa with regional branches in Montreal, Saskatoon, Winnipeg and Vancouver, the organization focuses on the social problems of food distribution and health, trade, standards, and communications and financial services.[1]

Their aim is to raise consumer awareness of marketplace issues, and to facilitate government and industrial coordination to tackle marketplace difficulties.

Isabel Atkinson served as national president from 1956 to 1960.[2]
