Stuck in a contract? Know the facts and your rights as a consumer.

Section 4.2 of this page Competition Bureau of Canada

However, incumbent waste management companies may raise significant barriers to entry by using contractual terms that prevent new entrants from securing this vital customer base. Such contractual terms encountered by the Bureau in past cases include:

  • Contracts with terms between 3 to 5 years, which lock in customers and make them unavailable to new entrants;
  • Automatic renewal clauses, often with substantial and unwieldy notice requirements for termination;
  • Rights of first refusal, which afford the incumbent opportunities to retain its customer base even in the face of better offers from new entrants; and
  • Large liquidated damages for early termination
