Highlights from the Competition Bureau’s Workshop on Emerging Competition Issues

On January 19, 2016, the Competition Bureau ("Bureau") held a one-day workshop on emerging competition issues. The workshop focused on two themes:

  1. disruptive business models and the implications for competition policy, and
  2. incorporating non-price effects in competition analysis.

It featured a keynote address on the topic of competition advocacy and disruptive innovations by Marina Lao, Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the United States Federal Trade Commission.

Approximately 120 participants from both Canada and abroad attended the workshop, including representatives from the business, legal and academic communities, federal and municipal regulators, foreign competition authorities, and the Bureau.
