COVID‑19: What the Competition Bureau is doing

The Competition Bureau continues to protect consumers and businesses from anti-competitive activity—including deceptive marketing, price‑fixing and bid‑rigging—throughout the COVID‑19 pandemic. Read more about what the Competition Bureau is doing.

Telephone service interruption: We are continuing to serve Canadians and encourage you to submit any questions, complaints, notifications and requests via email or by using our online forms. However, due to factors related to the pandemic, telephone services are currently unavailable for the Bureau's Information Centre, Whistle‑blowing Initiative, Federal Contracting Fraud Tip Line and Media Relations.

The Competition Bureau, as an independent law enforcement agency, ensures that Canadian businesses and consumers prosper in a competitive and innovative marketplace. We are a federal institution that is part of the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada portfolio.

Headed by the Commissioner of Competition, the Bureau is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Competition Act, the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act (except as it relates to food), the Textile Labelling Act and the Precious Metals Marking Act.
