Government seeking Chamber members input on red tape initiative

Initiative underscores importance of business group as an advocate

With a recent Ontario government announcement that new legislation intended to cut unwanted reguilations, also known as “red tape,” the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce is open to hearing from members with specific stories about how they are impacted by needless bureaucracy.

As part of the Chamber’s ongoing advoacy efforts on behalf of all members and at all levels of government, the business group has pledged to make sure those stories are heard.

”The fact is, governments at every level have had a habit of adding needless regulation over the years, with complexity translating into extra work but not a lot of value for the business,” said Chamber president and CEO Shirley de Silva. “More often than not, those regulations simply add cost, which makes not only businesses less competitive but makes the price of goods and services more expensive.”
