Commitment to full compliance with both the letter and the spirit of the antitrust laws is a fundamental commitment of the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA). The Competition Bureau of Canada is an organization that investigates anti-competitive practices and promotes compliance with the laws under its jurisdiction. The following is CIFFA’s directive:

“All meetings will be conducted in compliance with the provisions of the Competition Act. Meetings will not discuss or take action on any subject related to restraint of trade, price fixing, compensation, reimbursement, rate setting, marketing strategies and any other topics that could be considered anti-competitive.”
