Regulatory Stock Review Plan: 2019 to 2029: review of the Red Tape Reduction Regulations

Title or working title of regulatory initiative

Review of the Red Tape Reduction Regulations

Enabling act(s)

Red Tape Reduction Act


Review of regulations to align with legislative reviews


The partial review of these regulations was driven by the need to increase flexibility for regulators to pursue regulatory cooperation initiatives within the framework of the “One-for-One” Rule by recognizing the reduction of administrative burden as a result of formal regulatory cooperation activities. This review is associated with the department’s Forward Regulatory Plan: 2019 to 2029.

The complete review is driven by the review of the Red Tape Reduction Act, which is mandated to occur 5 years after coming into force. Therefore, these regulations will be subject to review as part of a mandated review of the act by 2020. It is scheduled to begin in spring of 2019.

Date of last review or amendment (year)

Never completely reviewed as they came into force in 2015

Targeted start for review (year)
