Making Ontario work smarter by modernizing regulations and easing burdens on job-creators

TORONTO - The Ontario government has launched a new website that will make it easier for businesses to help make the province open for business and open for jobs by inviting them to submit their ideas on modernizing regulations and reducing red tape. 

Prabmeet Sarkaria, Associate Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction, officially launched the new webpage this morning at the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters Annual Manufacturing Conference. The site will provide a simple, straightforward way for businesses to contact the government with their regulatory concerns.

"We want businesses to tell us directly how we can continue to reduce their regulatory burden, and make Ontario work smarter for them, in order to help make them be more competitive and support greater investment in Ontario," said Associate Minister Sarkaria. "The regulatory knot that was stifling business wasn't tied overnight. Untying it carefully and effectively will take time and persistence, and we will get the job done."

The Ontario government has taken more than 100 actions to modernize and streamline regulations, reducing overlap with the federal government and municipalities, updating old requirements and simplifying complicated rules.
