Abstract

In September 2012, the Competition Bureau of Canada finalized the new Abuse of Dominance Guidelines, outlining its general approach to enforcement actions under Sections 78 and 79 of the Canadian Competition Act. Several concerns were raised by interested parties about the new approach and interpretation. This article examines the economic principles underlying these concerns and evaluates whether the Bureau’s approach in each regard is appropriate in light of economic theory and practice.
