The National Competition Law Section of the Canadian Bar Association is holding its 2012 Spring competition law conference in Toronto (the 2012 Competition Law Spring Forum: Best Practices in a Time of Active Enforcement) on May 2, 2012 at the Toronto Board of Trade.
From the CBA:
“Aided by the 2009/10 changes to the Competition Act, the Canadian Competition Bureau has adopted an aggressive enforcement agenda. There are more litigated cases in the Tribunal and the Courts than ever before, including the first prosecution under the new conspiracy provisions of the Act. Commissioner Melanie Aitken has made it clear that there are more to come. Our expert panelists will provide guidance on effectively protecting your clients’ interests at all stages – from preventative compliance programs to responding to criminal or civil enforcement actions. We are delighted to announce that Commissioner Melanie Aitken will be our keynote lunchtime speaker.”
This year’s Spring conference will include panels on compliance, responding to Competition Bureau investigations, misleading advertising, developments in merger review and recent competition law developments (including the TREB abuse case, the contested Air Canada / United merger, Bell Canada advertising case and recent bid-rigging cases).
