Red Tape Awareness WeekTM 2017

Red Tape Home

Red Tape Awareness Week is on its way!

During the eighth annual Red Tape Awareness Week, from January 23-27, we will be challenging governments to focus their efforts on the tangled mess of unnecessary regulations holding back your small business – the silly rules, the confusing tax laws, the time-wasting paperwork, and all the unhelpful government policies that constitute what is derisively known as red tape.

Making government aware of what’s holding you back

Each and every day throughout the week will see a different red tape awareness event.

  • On Monday morning, we will be invoking a new challenge to Canada’s premiers on behalf of our members.
  • Tuesday will see us handing out report cards to the federal, provincial, and territorial governments, grading their progress in cutting red tape so far.
  • On Wednesday, we shine a light on the most ridiculous and most egregious regulations by awarding them The Paperweight, given every year to the worst examples of red tape from across the country.
  • And on Thursday, we will be focused on evaluating the performance of the CRA Call Centre Helpline in providing useful and accurate answers to your most common queries.
  • It all culminates on Friday when we once again present the coveted Golden Scissors Award to the public servant or elected official who did the most to provide an unfettered market place in which small business can thrive.
