Now in its 42nd season, Marketplace is Canada's consumer watchdog, and #1 current-affairs show. Whether it is a slick scam, misleading marketing claim, a product that could put your health at risk, or maddening customer service, Marketplace has got your back. We find out the truth about what costs you money or threatens your health and put pressure on people in power to set things right.

We get at the heart of the story by pursuing our own original tests, both in the lab and in the field. Our stories can take months to produce but it's worth it: This is television that touches Canadians' lives. Our work often stirs companies and governments to change their policies, products and regulations.

Hosts and seasoned reporters Erica Johnson and Tom Harrington, backed up by a creative team of passionate journalists and storytellers, dig up the real story to bring about change. Each episode puts the consumer experience to the test, supported by the rigorous research of the Marketplace team, insider secrets, and when appropriate, with hidden cameras.
