The Section would not be where it is today without them! The Executive would also like to welcome Dominic Thérien as Secretary for 2021-2022.

CBA Competition Law Fall Online Symposium

Have you registered yet? Join us from wherever you are on October 18-20, 2021 for the CBA Competition Law Fall Online Symposium – Canada’s preeminent event for competition law and policy professionals. This fall’s symposium brings together all segments of the competition law community and many voices from outside it to share knowledge, experience and advice regarding Canada’s competition laws as they apply today, and to discuss how Canada’s competition laws might evolve over the next few years.
