Today, Canada’s Commissioner of Competition, Matthew Boswell, championed the power of competition in building a more prosperous Canada at the Canadian Bar Association Fall Symposium.

In his speech, Commissioner Boswell underscored the importance of competition – including the need for a modernization of competition laws in Canada – as the country pivots from crisis management to economic recovery.

Competition is a key catalyst of productivity and economic growth. It attracts investment, stimulates the creation of high-skilled jobs and fuels exports of Canadian products, services, and ideas.

“Today, competition matters more than ever. In Canada, a robust competition policy agenda will be critical to rebuilding stronger, more resilient and more inclusive economies from coast to coast to coast. A greater focus on pro-competitive policies can safeguard the wealth and prosperity of all Canadians”
