Clark Wilson initiated an inquiry into for-profits operating clothing donation bins

Firm News

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.
