Saskatchewan Proclaims Red Tape Awareness Week

Released on January 20, 2015

The Government of Saskatchewan and the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) today proclaimed January 19 to 23, 2015, Red Tape Awareness Week in the province.  The week raises awareness about the importance of improving and modernizing Saskatchewan’s regulatory environment.

“In 2014, our government maintained our commitment to reduce red tape in ministries, crown corporations and agencies,” Minister responsible for Immigration, Jobs, Skills and Training Jeremy Harrison said.  “Our newly approved Red Tape Reduction Action Plan requires the thorough analysis of new regulations and their direct costs, benefits and alignment with provincial priorities.  The plan will also require the review of all existing business-related regulations with the same stringent examination every 10 years.”

Some of the major regulatory modernization achievements in 2014 include changes to the Oil and Gas Levy as requested by business, Occupational Health and Safety filing requirements for all businesses, streamlining of gas and electrical licensing, and improvements for processing of fishing and wildlife licenses.

“The provincial government continues to make progress in reducing red tape, and we are pleased to see the ongoing commitment to review regulations that make it easier for business to do business in Saskatchewan,” CFIB Vice-President, Prairie and Agri-business, Marilyn Braun-Pollon said.  “Saskatchewan stands out as one of the few provinces making regulatory accountability a priority – this approach will keep regulatory review on the government agenda.  If entrepreneurs can spend less time completing paperwork or searching for information they need, that’s more time that they can focus on growing their business.”

2015 marks the sixth year in a row the Ministry of the Economy has partnered with CFIB to proclaim Red Tape Awareness Week in Saskatchewan.
