WINNIPEG, MB. - A new act is being introduced by the province that would reduce red tape as well as streamlining government services.
This proposed legislation would eliminate 399 existing regulatory requirements and 475 pending regulatory requirements that would affect local governments, non-profits, educational institutions, Crown corporations, provincial public servants, citizens and businesses.
Major changes would include:
In total 44 statutes would be amended by the bill. Initial estimates indicate these streamlining efforts would save the provincial government nearly $1 million annually with millions more in reduced administrative burden for impacted citizens and individuals, Cullen said.
“Earlier this year Manitoba was recognized as the most improved province for reducing red tape and creating North America’s best regulatory accountability system,” Minister Cliff Cullen said. “This legislation builds on that record of success and continues on our mission to repair the services Manitobans rely on."
