The Competition Bureau of Canada recently issued a warning letter to for-profit businesses operating clothing donation bins that closely resemble the donation bins operated by not-for-profit charitable organizations. Following an inquiry, the Bureau has advised businesses to differentiate their for-profit bins so that people can make informed decisions about which companies and organizations receive their donations. Clark Wilson, acting on behalf of a client in the non-profit sector, was instrumental in convincing the Bureau to hold the inquiry which resulted in this warning being issued. To learn more about this directive, listen to this CBC broadcast or read the Bureau’s press release.
