What's the most ridiculous regulation in Canada?
Meet the top offenders and choose the worst!
We know you have no issue with the legitimate rules and we all agree a certain amount of regulation is important to protect human health and the environment.
But red tape is something else; it can be contradictory information from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) or a mandatory Statistics Canada survey that you are forced to complete right in the middle of seeding.
You don’t have time to sit on the phone waiting for government to answer questions or fill out piles of confusing paperwork in the middle of calving. It all adds up to a lot of wasted time and money!
Confusing forms, bad customer service and excessive government regulations are leaving 69% of Canadian farmers questioning whether their children should take over the farm.
With 41% of you planning to retire in the next 10 years, we know many of you are asking the big question – will the next generation want to take on the ever-mounting burden of red tape?
Unfortunately, more farmers are concerned with the burden of red tape compared to 10 years ago (77% in 2008, compared to 81% in 2018).
