Provide Your Input: Which Provincial Government Regulations Should be Improved, Kept or Scrapped
CutRedTape.alberta.ca was launched by the Government of Alberta on June 24th to crowd source input from business, organizations and the public on which government regulations should be improved, kept or scrapped.
This is part of the Red Tape Reduction Action Plan that was passed on June 10th and provides Albertans with a submission form in order to provide feedback on their encounters with costly and unnecessary red tape, and suggestions on how to get rid of it.
In addition to being an easy way for people to submit ideas, CutRedTape.alberta.ca will show where red tape has already been cut and keep people apprised on the commitment to reduce the regulatory burden by one-third.
The Red Tape Reduction Act directs government to review and evaluate existing regulations, rules and processes to ensure they are as efficient as possible and provide value to Albertans. It focuses on reducing unnecessary demands on time and resources to make it easier for people and organizations to navigate government and comply with regulations. Albertans are encouraged to share their red tape stories at CutRedTape.alberta.ca.
The local Chamber is pleased with the Red Tape Reduction Act, as it aligns with current policy recommendations on red tape and managing the impacts of layered legislation and speaks to the advocacy efforts on these very important topics.
