  • The Quebec government announced plans to move quickly to propose legislative amendments designed to better position Quebec companies to deter, and protect themselves from, unsolicited take-over bids. The government’s announcement, which also included proposed measures intended to increase the attractiveness of locating companies in Quebec, was made in conjunction with a report released by the Task Force on the Protection of Québec Businesses (the “Task Force”), which recommended the proposed reforms.
