Ontario To Streamline Business Regs

Small businesses happy about plans to ease the burden


Today, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) will meet with senior representatives from the Ontario Government to address the regulatory burden on small business. The meeting will be chaired by the Honourable Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development and Innovation.

"Government red tape costs Ontario businesses a staggering $11 billion a year," said CFIB's Ontario vice president Satinder Chera. "Our members tell us that excessive red tape is their second-highest priority after taxes, so anything that can be done to make things easier for small business will help to grow the economy and create jobs."
