Competition Law


The Competition Act is a federal law governing most business conduct in Canada. The Act prohibits certain criminal offences (such as price-fixing and bid-rigging conspiracies, resale price maintenance, price discrimination and predatory pricing), and also contains non-criminal provisions which allow the Competition Tribunal (‘the Tribunal’) to review mergers and certain business practices (such as tied selling, exclusive dealing, refusal to deal and abuse of dominance). The Competition Act contains both criminal and civil provisions prohibiting misleading and deceptive advertising and marketing.
