Government of Canada Rules Against Hockey Canada (July 2008)

Independent hockey across Canada received a ruling from the Competition Bureau of Canada that states Hockey Canada cannot penalize players and parents for participating in independent hockey leagues.

(Copied from link below)
In July 2008, the Competition Bureau received a complaint regarding Hockey Canada’s bulletin A09-02, which outlined sanctions against so-called "outlaw" hockey leagues, referring to leagues that operate outside the auspices of Hockey Canada, and in that sense in direct competition with them.
The Bureau examined the bulletin and concluded that some aspects of the sanctions gave rise to issues under section 79 of the Competition Act, otherwise known as the "abuse of dominance" provision.
The Bureau contacted Hockey Canada to explain its concerns with the potential anti-competitive aspects of the sanctions. The ensuing dialogue led Hockey Canada to eliminate or substantially modify, as appropriate, the sanctions so as to address the Bureau’s concerns.
The revised bulletin containing the new sanctions was posted on Hockey Canada’s Web site.
This issue was formally resolved in May 2009.
