Competition Law update

  • May 27, 2019

Summer may be on the horizon but the Competition Law Section isn’t slowing down.

Earlier this month, over 120 delegates from across the country gathered in Toronto for the CBA Competition Law Spring Conference. Exploring the theme of Competition Law Enforcement at a Crossroads: Disruption and Change, attendees engaged with leading experts from Canada and abroad on the latest in antitrust trends, and heard from Canada’s new Commissioner of Competition on the Bureau’s latest enforcement priorities.

Save the date for the 2019 CBA Competition Law Fall Conference – coming up October 17-18 in Ottawa.

Upcoming programs

The Competition Law Section’s twelve active committees collectively have held twenty-five engaging and relevant accredited continuous learning programs so far this year, and they aren’t done yet. Still to come are an in-person roundtable with Competition Bureau officials, a French-language presentation on CASL from enforcement agency officials, and more.

Coming soon:

All programs are free for members of the CBA Competition Law Section, Section Affiliates and Competition Bureau members. Visit the Competition Section webpage regularly to learn more about upcoming programs.
