Tourism Businesses have Until March 31st to Complete the Red Tape Challenge

Let the provincial government know how they can improve the regulatory challenges you face as a small tourism business. Add your voice today!

There are only a few days left to participate in Ontario's Red Tape Challenge on tourism regulations, and we want to hear from you!

By taking part in the Red Tape Challenge, you are helping us find ways to improve regulations in Ontario's tourism sector. We want to make it easier to do business in Ontario while protecting consumers, workers and the environment.

Ontario reports annually on government–wide burden reduction activities as legislated in the Burden Reduction Reporting Act, 2014.

Total savings since 2011 amount to $152 million and 6.5 million hours—surpassing by more than 50 per cent the government's target of saving $100 million by the end of 2017.

Taking part in the challenge is easy

Visit by March 31, 2018, to add your feedback to more than 160 comments received so far about how regulations can be improved to better support Ontario businesses.

Your ideas are critical to helping us create faster, smarter and more streamlined government-to-business services.

What will we do with your feedback?

We will carefully review the feedback and create an action plan that clearly outlines how we will work to address and improve existing regulations.

The action plan for this round of consultations will be publicly posted on our website by October 31, 2018. You can also read about how the government is responding to feedback arising from our auto parts manufacturing, food processing, financial services and mining sector consultations.

If you haven't had the chance to take part in the challenge, it's not too late.

If you've already provided feedback, we'd like to thank you for taking part in this important opportunity to support the growth and competitiveness of Ontario's tourism industry. Keep checking back to see what other users have suggested – all comments are welcome!
