As the pandemic economy continues to evolve, organizations need to adapt to their new operational realities and be more vigilant than ever on the increased business, legal, compliance and regulatory risks they face.
Both the Canadian Competition Bureau and the Canadian government have responded to the current economic climate with new priorities, policies and practices. This has brought changes to the Canadian competition law and investment review landscape that are important to those doing or looking to do business in Canada.
Please join the Blakes Competition, Antitrust & Foreign Investment group for an update on current developments and trends in competition law and foreign investment review. You will also hear views on the Competition Bureau's enforcement priorities and its approaches to merger, abuse of dominance, cartel and deceptive-marketing matters from Randall Hofley, who recently returned to Blakes after serving on the Bureau's senior executive as General Counsel and Senior Enforcement Advisor.
