MAJOR COMPETITION LAW COMPLIANCE UPDATE: On June 3, 2015, the Competition Bureau (Bureau) finalized its new core competition law compliance materials. The Bureau’s new compliance materials, which include information on most major competition law areas, misleading advertising, associations and the Bureau’s Leniency Program, are essential reading for corporate compliance officers, senior management and in-house and general counsel. For an overview of the developments (with links) see: Canadian Competition Law Compliance Programs.


I offer compliance and educational services for public and private companies, trade and professional associations, not-for-profit bodies and other organizations.

My work has included providing compliance services to a wide range of clients in relation to advertising and marketing, anti-spam, competition/antitrust, consumer packaging and labeling and consumer protection laws, among others.

My compliance services include: compliance audits, compliance programs and policies, compliance guidelines (e.g., conduct of meeting guidelines), seminars and talks for company and association personnel, vetting corporate and association activities, legal advice and opinions and seeking Competition Bureau advisory opinions.

Some representative examples of my projects include compliance talks and seminars for Canadian real estate agents and brokers, competition law lunch and learn seminars for law firms, designing the first national competition law compliance course for organized real estate (Competition Law and REALTORS: What You Say and Do Matters), compliance programs for Canadian associations, compliance books and brochures for The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) and Alliance for Canadian Real Estate Education (ACRE) and co-author of the first Canadian book on competition law and associations: The Competition Law Guide for Trade Associations in Canada (Carswell).

Some industries, among many others, in which I have provided compliance services include: architecture, construction, insurance, pharmacies, real estate and real estate boards.
