External Advisory Committee on Regulatory Competitiveness

The government has created the External Advisory Committee on Regulatory Competitiveness as a response to recommendations from reports by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Advisory Council on Economic Growth, and the Economic Strategy Tables, asking for a better way for stakeholders to engage with government

The Committee will:

  • bring together business, academic and consumer representatives from across the country to provide an independent perspective on barriers to business success
  • help identify opportunities to streamline regulations while protecting health, security, safety, and environmental standards

The Committee will also:

  • provide guidance on how regulatory frameworks are necessary to deal with emerging technologies
  • champion the use of pilots
  • identify possible areas of focus for the Centre for Regulatory Innovation announced in the 2018 Fall Economic Statement.

Mandate

The Committee’s overarching mandate is to advise Treasury Board by:

  • providing recommendations on how to improve regulatory competitiveness in Canada while protecting health, security, safety, and environmental standards
  • supporting the modernization of Canada’s regulatory system into one that further enables investment and innovation.

The advice is based on consensus and reflects diverse industry (including small and medium-sized enterprises) and consumer voices.
