The Competition Law Guide for Trade Associations in Canada
Availability: In Stock
The Competition Law Guide for Associations in Canada is a practical and concise summary of Canadian competition law as it applies to trade, professional and other associations. The Guide includes an overview of the major areas of Canadian competition law that apply to associations, including the conspiracy (criminal and civil), bid-rigging, abuse of dominance and misleading advertising provisions of the federal Competition Act. The Guide also includes discussions of some of the specific types of association activities that can raise competition law concerns including membership criteria and discipline, codes of conduct and standard setting, meetings and information exchanges and joint association activities (e.g., joint negotiation and marketing, joint purchasing activities and lobbying and advocacy). A compendium of "best practices" is provided as well as sample guidelines for the conduct of association meetings, document creation and responding to government investigations (principally search and seizures). Basic compliance presentations are also included. The Guide is intended to provide a practical resource for association executives, their personnel and counsel to better understand Canadian competition law as it applies to association activities and to assist them in anticipating and reducing potential competition law liability.
