Competition Bureau Publishes Updated IP Guidelines

On 13 March 2019, the Competition Bureau (the “Bureau”) published its updated Intellectual Property Enforcement Guidelines (the “IPEGs”) to reflect case law development and legislative amendments. For example, the updated IPEGs reflect amendments to the Patented Medicines (Notice of Compliance) Regulations.

The IPEGs describe the Bureau’s general approach to the interface between competition policy and IP rights. In this regard, the IPEGs include hypothetical examples describing how the Bureau applies its analytical framework in the context of IP.
