A Canadian Competition Policy for the Platform Economy | Une politique de la concurrence canadienne pour l'économie des plateformes
The competition policy debate in Canada is heating up. As Canadians pay seemingly ever-higher prices for their cellphones, internet access, and online shopping, policymakers are turning their attention to whether Canada’s Competition Act is up to the task for the modern digital economy–and what place it should have in the toolkit Canada applies to that task. What directions should competition reform take? Should the purposes of the Competition Act embrace other goals, like privacy? Should the Competition Bureau prioritize consumer protection, and how should it relate to provincial consumer protection authorities and federal sector-specific regulators in doing so? Does doing competition policy on the digital landscape look more like being a behavioural regulator? Is the Competition Act itself already fit-for-purpose for the digital age–such that the burden of change should fall squarely on the Bureau and Tribunal that implement it? Join Vass Bednar (McMaster), John Lawford (PIAC), Elisa Kearney (Davies), and John Pecman in a conversation moderated by Alexandra Posadzki (Globe & Mail) on June 8th at 2:00 p.m. EST.

Le débat sur la politique de la concurrence au Canada s’intensifie. Alors que les Canadiens paient des prix apparemment toujours plus élevés pour leurs téléphones cellulaires, l’accès à Internet et les achats en ligne, les responsables politiques se demandent si la Loi sur la concurrence du Canada est à la hauteur de l’économie numérique moderne et quelle place elle devrait occuper dans la boîte à outils que le Canada utilise pour cette tâche. Joignez-vous à Vass Bednar (McMaster), John Lawford (PIAC), Elisa Kearney (Davies) et John Pecman lors d’une conversation animée par Alexandra Posadzki (Globe & Mail) le 8 juin à 14 h HNE.
