Competition Law

Canada’s Competition Act applies to all businesses and business activities in Canada. It applies to three main areas of business conduct that can harm competition: coordinated conduct among competitors, abuse of dominance, and mergers. The Act also includes misleading advertising provisions. To learn more about the Competition Act, read our whitepaper, Canada’s Competition Law.

Our team of experienced competition lawyers advises businesses on compliance with the Competition Act, defends businesses targeted by Competition Bureau investigations and class actions, and assists businesses in obtaining clearance for mergers. We frequently act in Canada on multijurisdictional cartel and class action cases in collaboration with firms around the world.

Our competition/antitrust practice is recognized in Chambers, GCR 100, and Lexpert.
