The Canadian Consumer Rewards Coalition (CCRC) is a not-for-profit organization created to advocate on behalf of Canadian consumers.
Millions of Canadians use reward-based credit cards to collect points they can redeem for cash back, theater and event tickets, gas, groceries, flights and hotels. However, these rewards-based programs are frequently threatened by government interventions, and other unfair program changes. The CCRC defends the interests of all Canadian consumers, ensuring the rewards they’ve rightfully earned are protected, and preserving Canadian’s ability to earn these rewards in the future.
Our advocacy efforts are aimed at ensuring elected officials, regulators, and other decision makers ensure that consumers are put first when it comes to policies impacting points and rewards.
Andrew Lang leads the CCRC’s public consumer advocacy efforts. Andrew is a marketing and communications advisor with more than twenty years of experience helping emerging companies, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, achieve their business objectives.
Prior to launching the CCRC, Andrew served as the Director of Communications to Ontario’s Minister of Consumer Services – the ministry responsible for consumer protection in the province.
