2019 has shed light on ‘misleading’ practices and has shown the Bureau’s willingness to investigate and take action against marketing that it considers to be misleading through any medium.

The Bureau will remain vigilant and will not tolerate misleading representations. They expect all to take note and review their marketing practices.

The Competition Bureau has released a new set of priorities – make sure your company is prepared.

The Canadian Institute is proud to present the 26th Annual Advertising and Marketing Law Conference. Join us in Toronto for a 2-day forum designed to give you the information and tools you need to stay ahead of the ever-changing advertising and marketing law industry.

This is the ‘go-to’ legal event for advertising and marketing professionals. This year’s edition captures the latest changes to the law and discusses pitfalls of common advertising and marketing practices.
