Are lower prices, more choices and greater innovation important to you? Help us shape the future of our advocacy work
OTTAWA, May 1, 2018 —The Competition Bureau is launching two new advocacy initiatives today. We want to learn about opportunities where we can support increased competition through changes to regulations or policies. We are also seeking input on the Bureau’s draft Market Studies Information Bulletin.
Competition advocacy can act as a catalyst for change for Canadians – from lower prices to more product choice to better quality and convenience. The Bureau has recently worked with regulators and policymakers across Canada on initiatives such as making banking more convenient, taxi services less expensive, and options for eating out more diverse.
We are seeking to involve Canadians on where to focus our advocacy efforts going forward. Are there sectors of the Canadian economy where competition is not working well? You are invited to provide feedback by completing the new Advocacy Suggestion Form.
We are also inviting feedback on our draft Market Studies Information Bulletin. The Bulletin explains how market studies are selected, conducted, and how confidential information obtained from participants is treated. Market studies are one way that the Bureau advocates for increased competition and innovation. We encourage interested parties to provide feedback on the Bulletin by June 29, 2018. This can be done through an online form, or by sending comments to:
Competition Promotion Branch
50 Victoria Street
Responses may be posted on the Bureau’s website, unless it is specifically requested that they be kept confidential.
The Bureau will release a final Bulletin in the coming months, following consideration of the views collected during the consultation period.
In 2016, the Audit and Evaluation Branch (AEB) of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada published an evaluation of the Competition Bureau’s advocacy function. Many of the AEB’s recommendations focused on increasing Bureau engagement with stakeholders.
