About Red Tape Reduction
The reduction of red tape and regulatory burden is a priority for the Government of Saskatchewan. Red tape impacts all residents and businesses and reduces the efficiency of government. Inconsistent, unclear, out-of-date, and duplicative regulations create hardship for Saskatchewan people and business and act as barriers to economic growth. The Government of Saskatchewan wants your input to Help Cut Red Tape and improve regulations.
