Centre for Regulatory Innovation: Who we are
The Centre for Regulatory Innovation promotes a whole-of-government approach to regulatory experimentation to support innovation and competitiveness, and to help regulators and the regulatory system keep pace with technological advances. Working with industry and regulators, the centre provides support and expertise in regulatory innovation.
The Fall Economic Statement 2018 announced the creation of a Centre for Regulatory Innovation (CRI) based on recommendations for improving the regulatory environment for businesses, including increasing the use of regulatory experimentation to ensure that the regulatory system can keep pace with advances in technology.
The centre was launched in 2019 and is part of the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat’s Regulatory Affairs Sector.
- supports regulatory experimentation that promotes innovation and regulatory competitiveness in Canada;
