Competition Law Enforcement at a Crossroads:
Disruption and Change

The public and private enforcement of Canada’s competition laws are at turning point. The Bureau has signalled its intention to step up its enforcement activities in the digital economy, setting up a potential friction with other regulators in Canada and abroad. The Bureau has also challenged drip pricing and ordinary selling price practices across a range of industries, and is litigating its first abuse case in a number of years. The Bureau is also road testing its revamped immunity and leniency programs, and the Tribunal is implementing new fast track procedures to expedite competition enforcement in merger and other cases. And while the Bureau’s enforcement activities are heading in new directions, the private class actions bar is continuing to push the boundaries of the scope of private enforcement of the Act.

Please join us in Toronto on Tuesday, May 7, 2019, where leading experts from Canada and abroad will explore the latest in antitrust trends and discuss their implications, and to hear the new Commissioner’s latest enforcement priorities.
