Competition Class Actions in Canada: Recent Trends

March 2, 2022 - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Several recent decisions indicate there may be an increased willingness by the judiciary to dismiss or narrow competition class actions at the certification stage. What does this potential trend mean for future proceedings?

Please join members of our national Competition Class Actions team for a discussion on the latest developments in the Canadian competition class actions space. The session will include a cross-country review of some of the most significant cases from the past year and an analysis of the impact those key decisions may have going forward.

A brief Q&A session will follow the presentation.
