About the Show

MARKETPLACE, Canada's award-winning consumer watchdog, is always on the lookout for slick scams and misleading marketing claims. Its team of investigative journalists put the everyday products and services Canadians use to the test and hold companies and government to account. Innovative, insightful and irreverent, MARKETPLACE gets the goods and fights for change.

MARKETPLACE'S social feeds host a robust conversation where devoted, savvy viewers talk about the featured stories and consumer news of the day. Audiences can speak out about experiences, share tips for saving money, and contribute voices to the series ongoing investigations. On Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, MARKETPLACE is the go-to consumer destination, with videos, news, updates and explainers: a cheat sheet for the facts consumers need.
