This Information Bulletin on Transparency explains the approach that we usually take to communicate with different groups of people during our investigations at the Competition Bureau. This includes those who are subject to an investigation, the general public, complainants, and industry participants. This Bulletin replaces the Information Bulletin on Communication during Inquiries (2014). It reflects the evolution of our practices since that time and is subject to review as circumstances and practices change. We understand that providing information to Canadians about how we administer and enforce the law is in the public interest. Communication with the public promotes transparency and accountability in our work. It also encourages compliance with the law and promotes awareness of important issues which may impact consumers and businesses. We will try to use plain and accessible language whenever possible.
