Small business chat with Honourable Minister Prabmeet Sarkaria

Listen On

Before the pandemic, our government was working to modernize and streamline Ontario’s rules and regulations. In order to restore Ontario’s competitiveness and unleash the full potential of our communities, it’s vital to simplify laws and procedures that impose needless burdens on people and businesses. The government is continuing this work with a real sense of urgency. As we head into the second year of battling this pandemic, the need to reform Ontario’s regulatory framework is greater than ever. Red tape reduction has a key role to play in tackling barriers to business and laying the foundation for a strong economic recovery.

The Spring 2021 Red Tape Reduction Package is the next step in their plan to ease unnecessary burdens and help stimulate economic growth. The actions will benefit individuals, families and businesses by introducing new measures that will create the conditions for long-term investment and prosperity while enhancing the policies that protect our environment and keep us safe and healthy.

We recently got the chance to chat with Honourable Minister Prabmeet Sarkaria, Associate Minister of Small Business and Red Tape Reduction Minister who joined us yesterday to give a full picture of Ontario’s burden reduction efforts, past and present, as well as specifics of what is contained in the legislation proposed by him.
