ESDC's Administrative Burden Baseline: 2014 Baseline Count
In its Red Tape Reduction Action Plan, the Government committed to build on the efforts of the Paperwork Burden Reduction Initiative by requiring departments, through the Administrative Burden Baseline, to provide a count of the requirements in federal regulations that impose an administrative burden on business.
All federal regulations administered by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) that have requirements that impose administrative burden on business are identified in the following table. The total 2014 count is 2,791.
The count reflects the fact that ESDC and Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) have a shared responsibility for the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR). As a result, IRPR administrative burden requirements that impose administrative burden on employers that require a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) are to be counted by ESDC. The burden on employers that are LMIA- exempt is reflected in the count for CIC. When the same administrative burden requirements may be imposed on either LMIA-exempt employer (section 209.2) or LMIA-applicable employer (IRPR section 209.3), they are counted by both ESDC and CIC.
