Ottawa ON

Competition Law Fall Conference

2013 Annual Competition Law Fall Conference
Presented by the Canadian Bar Association's National Competition Law Section

Chair: Anita Banicevic
, Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP (Toronto)


An unprecedented number of important decisions are pending (or have recently been decided) in a variety of areas including class actions, mergers, price maintenance and misleading advertising. These decisions will have an important impact on Canadian competition law enforcement and compliance in the coming years.

On October 3 and 4, please join leading experts from the Competition Bureau and the Bar as they discuss and debate the implications of these important developments at the CBA’s National Competition Law Fall Conference.

In addition to a variety of informative and engaging sessions aimed at practitioners, in-house counsel and Competition Bureau staff, the conference will feature an interview of the Commissioner of Competition and a keynote dinner address from The Honourable Justice Rothstein of the Supreme Court of Canada.

We look forward to welcoming you to Canada’s premier competition law conference at our new venue, the Ottawa Convention Centre!
