Excerpts from "Canada Updates Collaboration Guidelines", GCR News
"Calvin Goldman at Goodmans in Toronto said that the existing collaboration guidance is widely viewed as one of the more important sets of guidelines provided by the bureau.
They are relied upon to address and consider various matters that may give rise to the application of the Competition Act. 'The new guidance provided is very much welcome even though the changes are realtively modest,' he added."
"Fellow Toronto-based Goodmans partner David Rosner said that the revised guidance gives the bureasu more enforcement discretion or scope to take decisions in individual cases. 'The General theme running through cases is that the bureau recognises competition takes place differently today and companies do not always compete in the same direct way,' he said.In recognition of that the bureasu gives more emphasis to hub-and-spoke arrangements where companies may compete with their competitors but use some else to facilitate the conspiracy, Rosner said."
