Building Materials and Construction Industries: Merger Review Under the Competition Act and Investment Canada Act

May 25, 2020

Government agencies, including the Competition Bureau (Bureau) and the Investment Review Division (IRD) of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) can have an impact on the business operations and transaction planning of building materials and construction companies in Canada.
