Resources for Canadian businesses
Managing your business during the COVID-19 outbreak
Since being launched in 2004, through the Paperwork Burden Reduction Initiative, the Government has taken important steps to reduce the paperwork burden on Canadian small- and medium-sized enterprises.
The Government remains committed to eliminating unnecessary red tape from the federal regulatory system, while maintaining Canada's high standards for safety and protection.
Launched on October 1, 2012, the Red Tape Reduction Action Plan sets out what the Government is doing to cut red tape so entrepreneurs can focus on doing business.
