The Alberta government is highlighting its work on reducing red tape.
Dale Nally is the Minister of Service Alberta and Red Tape Reduction, he says they’ve eliminated more than 27 per cent of regulatory requirements since 2019.
“It is the unnecessary regulatory burden that inhibits job creators from investing and makes life more difficult for Albertans. It’s not all regulations that we’re against, but we recognize that there is an unnecessary regulatory burden in our province and we want to wage war against that unnecessary regulatory burden.”
Nally says their work has saved Albertans and Alberta businesses an estimated $2.1 billion.
He says they’re working with industries to make the regulatory landscape more streamlined.
“We created these industry panels that have after consultations within their own industries put forward a number of recommendations on unnecessary red tape. They have been very helpful in getting a lot of these ideas pushed forward. As the minister, I let the industry panels do their work without any influence from myself, but then I meet with them occasionally so that I can see how they’re doing and what help they need from me.”
