Toronto ON

The CBA Competition Law Section's Reviewable Matters/Unilateral Conduct Committee and Competition Litigation Committee present:

Abuse of Dominance Comes in for a Landing: The State of s. 79 Following VAA and TREB

In-Person or Teleconference

In Person: Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP, 6300 First Canadian Place, 100 King Street West, Toronto, ON, M5X 1B8

In-Person registration starts at 11:30 AM Eastern
Teleconference program starts at 12:00 PM Eastern

VAA and TREB have elaborated on various elements that must be considered when evaluating potential liability under s. 79. From plausible competitive interest, to regulated conduct, to the need to justify one’s behaviour vis-à-vis parties who may not compete in the same market, to the intersection of privacy and competition law, businesses and their advisors need to take stock of these rulings. This panel brings together three different perspectives on abuse of dominance. The panelists will discuss and debate how the Bureau, the Bar and economists are likely to approach abuse of dominance cases in the future.
