The Competition Bureau is an independent law enforcement agency that protects and promotes competition for the benefit of Canadian consumers and businesses. Competition drives lower prices and innovation while fueling economic growth.
The Competition Bureau launched a Compliance Portal to help you and your business stay on the right side of competition and labelling laws. We’re seeking feedback on it until June 9, 2023.
