Take Action

The aim of Knowmore.org is to raise awareness of corporate abuse, and to serve as a catalyst for direct action against corporate power.

Ethical Consumerism is an important movement toward corporate reform, through which individuals recognize their own role in systems of oppression, and take personal steps toward resistance and  positive change.

However, the problem of unchecked corporate power is systemic and goes far beyond the scope of any single boycot or campaign.

Once you've seen enough of Knowmore's data and familiarized yourself with our Issues section, check out our Direct Action page to get involved!

[edit] Criticism

  • Allegedly charged RRSP clients undisclosed fees on foreign exchange transactions: "The complaint challenges the bank's practice of charging foreign exchange fees on stock trades and claims the Bank of Montreal intentionally hid and kept it secret from the class members, in breach of the defendants' contractual and fiduciary duties. The suit was filed on behalf of present and former clients who held registered retirement savings plans, registered retirement income funds, and registered education savings plans."
