Consultation on Regulatory Modernization

The Government of Canada is pursuing a number of initiatives to modernize the Canadian regulatory system and improve its performance for both Canadians and businesses. To inform the direction of these initiatives, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) is inviting input from all interested stakeholders on the following four initiatives related to its regulatory modernization agenda:

  1. Targeted Regulatory Reviews (Round 2)
  2. Review of the Red Tape Reduction Act
  3. Legislating changes to regulator mandates
  4. Suggestions for the next annual Regulatory Modernization Bill

A summary of each initiative, optional guiding questions, and instructions for submissions are available in the Canada Gazette Notice. Stakeholder submissions will be accepted until September 05, 2019. We look forward to receiving your input. Please use specific examples where applicable.
