Join Western Law for a fireside chat with the Commissioner of Competition, Mathew Boswell.

Competition is critical to an efficient and innovative economy. Forces including digital markets, political pressure and a series of high-profile cases have thrust Canada’s Competition Act into the spotlight. Are the proposed amendments to the Act designed to support competition? Can Canada play a meaningful role in shaping global antitrust discourse and enforcement?

In this insightful discussion Matthew Boswell will share his expertise and insights on the future of competition policy in Canada. Light refreshments will follow the discussion.
