Sponsored by
Analysis Group

Competitors may seek to engage in various forms of collaboration as they continue to look for cost savings and efficiencies, particularly while weathering the economic crisis resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Competition Bureau’s recently updated Competitor Collaboration Guidelines, the discontinuation of the Competition Bureau’s investigation of the Torstar/Postmedia transaction and other developments prompt a discussion regarding the potential application of section 45 of the Competition Act to mergers and other joint venture activities. Join our panelists as they explore the bounds of criminal enforcement in the context of merger transactions.
