The Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority of Saskatchewan (FCAA) is informing consumers that the bond issued to 102069557 Saskatchewan Ltd. dba Big Q Auto has been demanded and paid. Consumers who suffered a financial loss as a result of their vehicle transaction with Big Q Auto may be eligible to file a claim for financial loss. 

Big Q Auto operated as a licensed vehicle dealer in Wynyard, Saskatchewan until November 24, 2022.

A bond is a sum of money that a bonding company agrees to pay if the licensee – in this case Big Q Auto – contravenes The Consumer Protection and Business Practices Act or The Consumer Protection and Business Practices Regulations. A bond is a licensing requirement for vehicle dealers in Saskatchewan.

To determine claim eligibility, consumers are required to provide a signed claim form and supporting documentation to substantiate their financial loss.
