Saskatchewan » Regulation & Paperburden

Regulations are an essential tool used by governments to carry out economic and social policy from which businesses and citizens benefit. While some regulation is needed, too often federal and provincial governments impose excess regulation that is not only unnecessary, but is also harmful to businesses. Government-imposed regulation reduces productivity and limits innovation, with SMEs bearing a disproportionately high amount of the burden.
