WINNIPEG – Manitoba’s getting better when it comes to the red tape of bureaucracy but there’s still a lot of room for improvement.
The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) gives us a D+ in their annual red tape report card of all the provinces.
Finance Minister Cameron Friesen tells 680 CJOB he’ll take it.
“The CFIB used to rate Manitoba as an F,” says Friesen. “What this shows is an improvement and what it reflects is our government’s committment to reduce the regulatory burden for businesses, non-profits and people in Manitoba.”
The CFIB says Manitoba is well on its way to becoming a leader on reducing red tape.
The list ranked British Columbia and Quebec at the top of the list while the Northwest Territories and Alberta are at the bottom, both receiving an F.
