"The purpose of the Immunity and Leniency Programs (Programs) is to uncover and stop criminal anti-competitive activity prohibited by the Competition Act (Act) and to deter others from engaging in similar behaviour. The Programs are administered jointly by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Commissioner of Competition (Commissioner). This Bulletin describes the roles and responsibilities of the Commissioner and the DPP, the requirements an applicant must satisfy to obtain immunity or leniency, the impact of corporate immunity or leniency on directors, officers, employees and agents, the steps in the respective immunity or leniency process and the impact of failure to comply with the requirements of an immunity or plea agreement. It addresses timing issues, including those that may arise in the context of international criminal activity and multi-jurisdictional investigations, and sets out the confidentiality assurances that the Bureau will make to an applicant"--Provided by publisher.
