The goal of this paper is to provide some background on Canada’s regulatory system governing generic entry, its competition legislation, and the Bureau’s preliminary views as to how the Canadian competition law could apply to settlements. As part of its work on examining issues involving IP rights and competition policy, the Bureau is considering the appropriate enforcement approach to settlements in the Canadian context. In the process of determining this approach, the Bureau will continue to consult with interested parties, as well as other competition agencies, to benefit from their knowledge and experience.
