On March 12, the last of Canada’s Competition Act amendments came into force. They are the most significant changes to Canadian competition law in 25 years and arguably since Canada adopted competition law in 1889. Included are changes to most of the cornerstone provisions of the Act, including changes to the conspiracy, bid rigging, misleading advertising, criminal price maintenance and abuse of dominance provisions.

In fact, the new law Kenney is introducing is called - to avoid any confusion - the Cracking Down on Crooked Consultants Act. If passed, it would become a criminal offence to offer immigration services without being a registered consultant.
