Abstract

This paper reviews the major changes to Canada's competition law enacted in 1986, including new merger and abuse of dominant position provisions, the establishment of a Competition Tribunal, mandatory pre-notification of certain transactions, and revisions of the prohibition against agreements in restraint of trade. Special attention is given to joint ventures, export agreements and vertically integrated resource companies.
