Price-fixing occurs where competing companies get together and agree to increase prices, reduce supply or allocate markets or customers. As a result, consumers and businesses are forced to pay higher prices. Price-fixing class actions seek to recover the amount that purchasers overpaid.
Virtually every Canadian has purchased at least one product that contains a price-fixed component. Price-fixing occurs in many industries from components in televisions and computers to chemicals, auto parts and chocolate. Price fixing has also occurred in Canada on products such as gasoline, drywall and batteries.
