CABE Webinar – Competition in Canada from 2000 to 2020: An Economy at a Crossroads

The Competition Bureau has released a major report – Competition in Canada.

The Bureau’s role is to protect and promote competition to benefit Canadian consumers and businesses. Competition drives economic growth. It encourages businesses to innovate and become more productive. It benefits consumers because it lowers prices, increases choice and improves quality.

As the enforcer of Canada’s competition laws, the Bureau has collected extensive knowledge about the dynamics of competition in important sectors and markets. However, the purpose of this research project is not to study any particular sector or market. Instead, their research provides a broader view of competition in the economy as a whole.

In this webinar, Matthew Stratthean will  present the findings of this research. The objective was to examine:

  • the general state of competition across the Canadian economy
  • how competition in Canada has evolved from 2000 to 2020
