Consumer Protection events and education

Important notice for presentations and events in the time of COVID-19

Consumer Protection WA cares for the health and wellbeing of its staff and the WA community. We will be assessing all events and presentations week by week to see if they can still go ahead with regards to COVID-19 restrictions and number of community cases. Please note events and presentations are subject to change including cancellation, rescheduling or change in delivery method such as presented online. This website page will be updated as events are reviewed. However, please contact Consumer Education for latest information relating to Consumer Protection WA attendance or hosting. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Consumer Protection staff participate in various events throughout the year. We also manage campaigns targeting common issues such as Romance Scams on Valentines Day.  

The below calendar is maintained regularly, however many events are not organised by our staff and are subject to change.
