Legal actions and opinions

The Competition Bureau is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Competition Act, the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act, the Textile Labelling Act and the Precious Metals Marking Act. While it resolves competition issues in many ways, it may seek legal action by referring criminal matters under any of these Acts to the Director of Public Prosecutions of Canada.
