Competition Policy Council

Share

Vibrant, dynamic competition lies at the heart of a robust economy, and supportive competition policy is essential to innovation, growth, and consumers’ wellbeing.

The Competition Policy Council comprises top-ranked academics and practitioners active in the field of competition policy. The Council, co-chaired by Benjamin Dachis, Associate Director, Research at the C.D. Howe Institute and Adam Fanaki, Partner, Competition and Foreign Investment Review and Litigation at Davies, Ward, Phillips & Vineberg LLP provides analysis of emerging competition policy issues. Professor Edward Iacobucci, Dean at the University of Toronto and Competition Policy Scholar at the Institute, advises the program.

The Council generates crucial analysis for practitioners in the field, convenes a neutral forum for testing competing views, and provides an opportunity for policymakers, the media and the public to draw on the expertise of the competition field’s most distinguished legal and economic minds. The Council, whose members participate in their personal capacities, releases public reports that outline the issues and summarize the reasoning behind participants’ recommendations.
