Regulatory Reform Initiative

Red Tape Reduction

The Regulatory Reform Initiative has three primary goals:

  • To modernize Government’s regulatory processes,
  • To enhance the quality of services to the public and,
  • To maintain zero per cent growth in the number of regulatory requirements.

While citizens and businesses expect governments to protect them through the use of regulation, without a continual focus on regulatory improvement it is possible for the scope and complexity of regulation to become overly burdensome. When that happens, people and businesses can be subject to unnecessary regulatory requirements and excessive paperwork, resulting in costs in time, money and service quality. The Regulatory Reform Initiative promotes the development, implementation and review of legislation, regulations, policies and forms in a way that reduces the complexity and the time it takes to comply with requirements or to receive a service.
