Canadian Competition Policy Institutions and Decision Processes

Canadian Competition Policy Institutions and Decision Processes

(p.68) 4 Canadian Competition Policy Institutions and Decision Processes
Comparative Competition Policy



Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on political and institutional developments over the last decade centered on the enactment of the 1986 Competition Act. It examines the politics of Canada's competition policy institutions and the Canadian competition policy-making and decision-making process. The Canadian competition policy system also involves a set of other players both within the structure of the federal government and among provincial governments. The Canadian competition policy system suggests five overall conclusions, one of which is that the 1986 Competition Act, while a marked change from its predecessor legislation, is still much closer to a controlled system of discretionary case-based micro-economic governance than it is to a transparent rule-based regime for ensuring competition.
