MONTRAL, le 17 fvr. 2022 / CNW / -La13eannual edition of Red Ribbon Awareness WeekMCOrganized by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB), from February 22-25 2022. This The event is an opportunity to launch a dual challenge to governments across the country: to reduce red tape and modernize regulations.

? Economic recovery is for Canada And Qubec is a real opportunity to create a strong and competitive business environment for SMEs. But it is an opportunity that must be seized. For nearly two years, SMEs have been subject to ever-changing restrictions. What they want now is for governments to really focus on modernization and regulatory simplification,” said François Vincent, CFIB Vice President.

According to CFIB survey data, nine out of ten small business owners believe that cutting red tape is important. However, 75% of them are not convinced that governments really want to do the job.

All levels of government must learn to be flexible in dealing with the pandemic. For example, licenses were granted in less than 48 hours for balconies of cafes and restaurants, electronic signatures of administrative documents were authorized, tax forms were simplified, etc. These are examples of the flexibility that SME owners have been waiting for for years. Mr. Vincent adds: We must continue down this path and above all not return.
