Ottawa – Canada Bread Co. Ltd. has been added to the federal government’s list of banned suppliers for its role in a price-fixing conspiracy.

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) has added the company to its list of Ineligible and Suspended Suppliers under the Integrity Regime.

As per the Ineligibility and Suspension Policy, Canada Bread is currently ineligible to be awarded a contract or real property agreement by the federal government.

This suspension will end on August 22, 2033.


In June, Canada Bread agreed to pay a $50-million fine concerning two wholesale price increases implemented by Weston and Canada Bread more than a decade ago, when Canada Bread was majority owned and controlled by Maple Leaf Foods.
