Scholars’ Hub @ Home: Rethinking Canada’s competition policy in a digital economy
Today’s digital economy is radically different from the past, being increasingly dependent upon and driven by the mass collection and algorithmic use of digital data, especially personal data. Canada’s competition policy has yet to catch up with these changes. The recent federal government’s consultation on the future of competition policy represents an important opportunity to examine the implications of digital data for markets and to rethink the policy frameworks that underpin those markets in light of these implications.
Join Kean D. Birch, Director of the Institute for Technoscience & Society and Professor, Graduate Program in Science & Technology Studies, Faculty of Graduate Studies on April 4 at 12 p.m. for his talk Rethinking Canada’s competition policy in a digital economy.
