June 22, 2021 – Ottawa, Ontario – Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat
A modernized Canadian regulatory system is fundamental to ensuring Canada’s strong economic recovery from the pandemic. Continued progress in advancing regulatory reform efforts will improve transparency, reduce administrative burden, and advance regulatory harmonization.
Today, the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, President of the Treasury Board, shared the Roadmaps resulting from the second round of Regulatory Reviews on clean technology, digitalization and technology neutral regulations, and international standards.
Regulatory Reviews help modernize Canada’s regulatory system by evaluating outdated regulatory requirements and practices to reduce barriers to economic growth, competitiveness, and innovation. The ensuing Roadmaps outline a suite of initiatives and proposed timelines to support innovation and economic growth, while ensuring strong health, safety, security, and environmental protections.
Roadmaps from the second round of Regulatory Reviews support businesses through more than 30 proposals, which address issues and irritants raised by stakeholders, encourage the use of digital tools, support innovative technologies and approaches, and advance the development and use of international standards.
