Ontario is cutting red tape to make it easier for international companies to invest, do business and create jobs in the province.
Premier Doug Ford spoke at the 2018 Toronto Global Forum, an event organized by the International Economic Forum of the Americas.
"I want to send a clear message to the world that here in Ontario, we are ready to do business once again," said Ford. "For too long, job creators in Ontario have been burdened by inefficient, excessive and inflexible regulations. By cutting red tape, we're telling international companies and partners that doing business with Ontario is the right move."
Premier Ford discussed the action the government is taking to lighten regulatory burdens to cut costs to businesses, streamline processes, reduce barriers to investment and harmonize regulatory requirements across municipal, provincial and federal levels. These actions will make it easier for companies from around the world to invest, grow and create jobs in Ontario.
"We promised to make it easier to do business in Ontario. We're attracting companies and jobs to the province by removing outdated, duplicated and unnecessarily complicated regulations that weigh them down," said Ford. "By cutting red tape, Ontario will become a top global destination for international trade and business."Source : Government of Canada
