Help Cut Red Tape

Compliance requirements are actions, activities or information that must be provided to a government regulator to access services, carry out business, or meet legal responsibilities under provincial legislation, regulation, policy, or forms. 

The estimated total compliance requirements count in Saskatchewan is 230,647.

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 Inconsistent, unclear, out-of-date and duplicative regulations create hardship for Saskatchewan people and business and act as barriers to economic growth.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 reduction of red tape and regulatory burden is a priority for the Government of Saskatchewan. In 2014, the Government of Saskatchewan launched a red tape reduction effort to identify red tape irritants across government, estimate their cost, and address them. In 2022-23, the Ministry of Trade and Export Development, which leads this initiative, forecast that efforts to cut red tape will achieve $668.5 million in savings over the next 10 years – across government and Crown corporations.

Help us identify and address these irritants by reporting specific examples of red tape using the feedback form below.

Report Red Tape Feedback Form

The Ministry of Trade and Export Development will assess each submission and refer it to the appropriate ministry, agency or Crown corporation for a response. All submissions will be reviewed, examined and responded to in the order they are received.
