Regulations are rules set by government that support the law. Regulatory best practices help ensure that these rules are fair and clear. The provincial government works with other governments to simplify regulations for people and businesses. Simplified regulations make it easier and faster to work with government. Simplified regulations also help companies do business in multiple provinces and help people to work across Canada.
Our office supports the use of regulatory best practices by working with other government departments to determine the impact of any new or modified regulations. The impact of a regulation is measured through a Regulatory Impact Analysis. If you have to complete a Regulatory Impact Analysis and need help, check our contact page.
Regulatory best practices are enforced under the law through the Regulatory Accountability and Reporting Act.
