Competition Bureau pivots to address matters impacting Canadians in 2022-23

Competition Bureau Canada published its 2022-23 annual plan earlier this month which focuses on competitive markets for economic recovery and growth.

The bureau will turn its attention to three major priorities in the upcoming years. This includes targeting ongoing issues linked to the COVID-19 pandemic; focusing enforcement on sectors of the economy that are vital to Canada’s long-term economic well-being; and supporting the Government of Canada’s review and update of the Competition Act, and continuing to encourage pro-competitive laws, regulations and policies at all levels of government in Canada.

In a comment to The Lawyer’s Daily, partner and co-chair of the firm’s Competition and Foreign Investment Review practice Dany Assaf said that it is great to see the Competition Bureau’s enforcement focus on matters important to everyday Canadians.

“We all look forward to engaging with the bureau towards advancing an even more inclusive, competitive, and productive economy for every Canadian and all stakeholders,” he added.
