Apple's Canadian branch is currently being investigated by Canada's Competition Bureau concerning allegations that it included anti-competitive clauses in its contracts with carriers in the country.

According to a report by Reuters, Canada's Competition Bureau has sought a court order to force Apple to turn over records that would aid in its investigation. However, it looks that Apple is so far in the clear. Reuters reports:

The bureau stressed that, so far, it has no evidence that Apple has contravened any rules and that it has not filed any application with the Competition Tribunal or any other court to seek remedies for any alleged anti-competitive conduct.
