Competition Tribunal Decision PDF

The Tribunal has partially granted the Application brought by the Commissioner of Competition (the “Commissioner”) pursuant to section 79 of the Competition Act, RSC 1985, c C-34, as amended (the “Act”). In the Application, the Commissioner was seeking an order prohibiting the Toronto Real Estate Board (“TREB”) from engaging in certain anti-competitive acts in connection with the supply of residential real estate brokerage services in the Greater Toronto Area (“GTA”). In brief, the Commissioner contended that, by restricting access to certain Multiple Listing Service (“MLS”) information on the password-protected virtual office websites (“VOW”) of its real estate brokers and salesperson members (the “Members”), and by restricting the manner in which its Members may display and use that information, TREB’s conduct constituted an abuse of dominant position under section 79.
