Red tape includes any rules that make it harder to interact with the government to get the information or services you need.

What happens when you submit an idea or issue?

Once we have received your submission, we review it and route it to any relevant Ontario ministries for their review. We will provide you with an initial response to your submission within 14 business days.

On a larger scale, submission data are collected to help us identify possible problem areas and which types of businesses are commonly impacted. Your input helps us shape legislation, policies and regulations.

What to expect?

You will be asked questions to help us understand the red tape issue that you are facing and route it to the proper ministry.

  • The form typically takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes to complete, depending on the level of detail you choose to provide.
  • You will receive a confirmation email with your feedback details.
