Impacts of Canada's regulatory structure on small business : between protection and competition / Dan Ruimy, chair. : XC39-1/1-421-15E-PDF

"Regulation ensures, among other things, public health and safety. However, the duplication and lack of harmonization of regulations across and among jurisdictions can create a significant burden and generate important costs for Canadian businesses. There are hundreds of federal laws and regulatory requirements, in addition to an unknown number of regulatory requirements imposed by provincial, territorial and municipal governments. This burden can be greater for small businesses, given their fewer resources. The lack of harmonization can hinder market access for Canadian companies by slowing down some approval processes, increasing costs and creating barriers to trade within Canada and internationally. Ultimately, the regulatory burden can hinder competitiveness and innovation opportunities"--Summary, page [1].
