Fair Fees - Frais équitable

Digital Access to Opportunities - Access to the internet has become a necessity, and the high cost of service affects access to opportunities in the job market, in school, and in many other aspects of daily life. ACORN Canada members demand $10/month high speed internet for low income families as part of our Digital Access to Opportunities campaign.
Regulate Remittances - Remittances (sending money overseas through money transfer organizations like Western Union) and payday loans are big business in Canada, and thousands of Canadians are getting gouged by companies charging exorbitant fees for these services. ACORN Canada members work for the regulation of these fees and fairness in the remittance and payday loan industries.

On Tuesday September 6, 2016, ACORN Canada members in Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver organized a coordinated Day of Action to demand that major Canadian financial institutions and investment companies stop investing and directing investment into high interest, predatory companies like easyfinancial and easyhome; and end banking practices that generate profits off of Canada's lowest-income families.
