Getting the Deal Through – Cartel Regulations 2021

Feb 22, 2021 Publications Dr. A. Neil Campbell*, Guy Pinsonnault, William Wu

As the world grapples with the unprecedented health and economic challenges arising from the corona virus pandemic, competition law enforcement agencies will have further challenges in deploying scarce resources.  However, cartel enforcement is likely to remain a priority. Once investigations begin, the complexity and risk exposures for firms that may have been involved in problematic conduct are at an all-time high.

In this context, Lexology Getting the Deal Through – Cartel Regulations 2021 seeks to provide up-to-date and practical information on international cartel laws and enforcement for 30 jurisdictions.

During the past year, the Canadian Competition Bureau and the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) have implemented revised immunity and leniency programs. In addition, the Supreme Court of Canada confirmed that the thresholds for certification of class proceedings by indirect purchasers, as well as “umbrella purchasers” who did not purchase from alleged cartel members, are very low.

McMillan’s Competition, Antitrust & Foreign Investment Group has been at the forefront of cartel investigations and class action litigation in Canada over the past two decades, and we hope the Canada chapter we have prepared for this volume will be a valuable reference for managing any issues you may encounter.
