Today, the Competition Bureau hosted an annual trilateral meeting with the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission and Mexico’s Federal Economic Competition Commission. Commissioner of Competition Matthew Boswell and his counterparts discussed recent cases, as well as their ongoing priorities – with a focus on competition law enforcement and advocacy in the digital economy.

Today’s digital and data-driven economy continues to transcend borders. To foster competitive and innovative digital marketplaces, it is essential for competition agencies to collaborate on enforcement and advocacy matters and to share best practices.

Building and maintaining strong partnerships improves the Bureau’s ability to deliver results for Canadians. By investing in its relationships with competition agencies and other law enforcement bodies, the Bureau can strengthen its ability to protect Canada’s competitive marketplace, address cross-border anti-competitive activity, and promote convergence on competition policies internationally.
