Lexology’s Getting the Deal Through: Luxury & Fashion 2024 Guide - Canada

Canada's luxury retail landscape continues to be dominated by e-commerce sales, though we’ve seen a slight uptick in sales at brick-and-mortar locations since last year, and especially since the COVID pandemic. Supply chain disruptions continue to modestly affect inventory, but the allure of Canada remains undiminished for international luxury brands eyeing expansion.

In the Canada-focused chapter of the Lexology Getting the Deal Through: Luxury & Fashion 2024  guide, McCarthy Tétrault’s Retail and Consumer Markets industry specialists offer an informed dissection of Canada's luxury and fashion scene. We explore the influence Canada’s regulatory and competition authorities have on the industry and outline critical factors for companies to consider. Download our chapter for a comprehensive examination of this dynamic market, including:

  • The state of the luxury and fashion market in Canada, including emerging trends and developments
  • Legal framework governing the development and manufacture of fashion goods, supply chain, import and export rules, and corporate social responsibility and sustainability obligations
  • Legal framework governing the online retail space, including the launch of a digital fashion marketplace, sourcing and distribution, terms and conditions, and tax considerations
  • Intellectual property, data privacy, and security considerations, including key considerations in regard to privacy law with the way fashion and luxury companies will need to structure electronic messaging, in particular
  • Regulatory framework governing advertising and marketing in Canada, including online marketing and social media
  • Product regulation and consumer protection, including product safety rules and standards and product liability
  • M&A, joint venture, and competition issues, including stricter competition-infringement penalties
  • Employment and labour considerations, including in relation to employment relationships, trade unions, and immigration
