Centre d'entreprises et d'innovation de Montréal (CEIM) is pleased to invite you to a breakfast conference on:
PROMOTING HEALTHY COMPETITION IN THE DIGITAL ECONOMY
Earlier last May, following an investigation by the Competition Bureau, the Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) agreed to pay a $ 4.5 Million penalty for deceptive commercial practices. A few months later, the American giant Ticketmaster also agreed to pay the same amount following an investigation into allegations of misleading prices when selling tickets online.
Promoting healthy competition is key to enabling Canadian businesses to thrive and innovate, and it is in this context that the Competition Bureau recently published a call-out for information for the business community to report potentially anti-competitive conduct in the digital economy.
This breakfast conference aims to introduce you to the Competition Bureau's activities and inform you on corporate compliance programs as well as potentially problematic practices under the Competition Act that companies may face in the conduct of their business.
