Excerpt from "The Public Competition Enforcement Review - Eleventh Edition - Chapter 5: Canada":
Competition and antitrust matters continue to attract significant attention in Canada. Following the retirement of Commissioner of Competition John Pecman in May 2018, Matthew Boswell, Senior Deputy Commissioner of Competition, has been appointed Commissioner of Competition. Commissioner Boswell has continued to highlight the importance of an innovation-friendly approach to regulation.
The Competition Bureau (Bureau) continues to encourage compliance with competition laws, modernise its policies (including its intellectual property enforcement guidelines and its cartel immunity and leniency policy), and establish and improve working relationships with law enforcement in other legal areas and other jurisdictions.
