About the Show

  • TV
  • ONLINE

MARKETPLACE is Canada's consumer watchdog. 

We've got your back, revealing what you need to know to protect yourself, your family and your money from slick scams and misleading claims. Innovative, insightful and irreverent, MARKETPLACE--back for its 42nd season--is Canada's top-rated investigative program.

Hosts Erica Johnson and Tom Harrington lead a team of experienced investigative journalists, testing the products and services you use every day, holding companies and government to account, and fighting for change. 

Last season, an average of more than one million Canadians tuned in each week to this award-winning series for renovation horror stories, hidden-camera investigations into hotel hygiene and restaurant secrets, and much more.

On TV and online, MARKETPLACE gives you the straight goods, so you can spot misleading claims, avoid rip-offs and get your money's worth.
