The Canadian Competition Bureau is presently investigating allegations of price fixing in the commercial printer paper market among certain Canadian paper merchants.
Companies involved include Cascades Resources, Domtar Inc., Coast Paper Ltd. and Unisource Canada Inc.
The allegation is based on the assumption that these companies would have colluded to unduly reduce market competition between paper merchants in Canada.
Cascades said in a statement that since investigation is still in its early stages, the company can not comment on the matter at this time, but will cooperate fully with the Canadian Competition Bureau throughout the investigation.
All companies deny any wrongdoing and said they will cooperate with the Bureau.
