Canada's Competition Bureau investigating Apple for anti-competitive carrier deals

Apple's Canadian operations are under investigation from the country's Competition Bureau, which is looking into claims of anti-competitive deals struck with carriers in the Great White North.




The ongoing investigation was announced by the bureau on Thursday, according to The Globe and Mail. The bureau is said to have sought a court order this week asking Apple to turn over records relating to the investigation.

The bureau has said that there is no conclusion of any violations by Apple Canada. The statement did not say specifically what about Apple's agreements with carriers was under investigation.

The iPhone is available on a range of carriers in Canada, including the nation's "big three" providers: Rogers, Bell, and TELUS. Other carriers include Virgin Mobile, Fido, Koodo, plus regional providers.
