It’s widely known that foreign companies looking to acquire strong targets are drawn to Canada’s vast resource sector. But there’s also plenty of M&A activity — and opportunity — across many other Canadian industries, such as technology, life sciences, media and communications, manufacturing and retail. 

In this one-hour webinar, experts from Gowlings share their insights on the Canadian M&A legal regime, and offer tips on how to navigate the complexities of the market and successfully acquire a Canadian company. Topics include: 

  • Building your acquisition model and determining the most appropriate structure for a Canadian company acquisition
  • Determining the applicable tax rules and assessing the potential tax advantages
  • An overview of competition law and the Investment Canada Act — due diligence, thresholds and the review process
