Competition Policy Review Panel - Formal Consultations

The Competition Policy Review Panel held a series of formal consultations with Canadians in response to the Panel's consultation paper "Sharpening Canada's Competitive Edge".  This was in addition to a number of informal meetings with issue experts and senior officials, in Canada and abroad, throughout the Panel's proceedings.

Thirteen formal consultation meetings were held from January through March 2008.  In addition to regional meetings across Canada, consultations were held on specific themes of direct relevance to the Panel's mandate, including the Investment Canada Act; Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Canadian Direct Investment Abroad (CDIA); Competition Policy; Cultural Policy; Telecommunications and Broadcasting; and Financial Services.  Consultations were held in Vancouver (January 24), Calgary (January 25), Waterloo (6 March), Toronto (15 and 29 February; 7 and 28 March), Ottawa (6 February), Montréal (21, 22, 27, and 28 February), and Halifax (4 March).
