Potential Class Action Areas

There are many potential areas where class actions may be brought including:

Competition Act Violations

Under Canada's Competition Act there is a civil remedy available against companies who have engaged in any of the following activities: price fixing, misleading advertising, monopolization, oligopolization and tied selling.

If you believe a company:

  • from whom you purchased goods or services, or
  • with whom your company competes;
has engaged in such illegal activities, we would be pleased to discuss your litigation alternatives with you. Please email or call (604) 654-2966.

Securities Fraud

People who own shares that have lost value due to a failure by the company to disclose material facts in a timely way, may be able to bring a class action.
