On September 8 and 9, 2022, the Competition Bureau will host two virtual public information sessions to let the public know about changes to the Competition Act.  Members of the public can register and send questions on Eventbrite.  Notable changes to the Act that came into effect on June 23, 2022, include clarifying that incomplete price disclosure—drip pricing—is a deceptive marketing practice; allow private parties to apply directly to the Competition Tribunal if they are impacted by abuse of dominance; and enable more effective enforcement in today’s digital economy. More information on the amendments can be found by consulting the Bureau’s Guide to the 2022 amendments to the Competition Act.
