Bill C-59 Passes

June 25, 2024

Attention all retailers operating in Canada: The Fall Economic Statement Implementation Act, Bill C-59, has received Royal Assent. The Act moves ahead with a Canada-only Digital Services Tax and makes significant changes to competition law, including new rules around greenwashing, and the right-to-repair. RCC continues to influence the development of these aspects so they are favourable to retailers. However, with the bill now law, members should prepare accordingly. RCC will continue to provide updates as they become available. If you have any questions in the meantime, please contact: Matt Poirier, VP, Federal Government Relations at
