Recognizing the importance of ensuring that regulatory frameworks remain effective and relevant, the Government of Canada announced in Budget 2018 that it would pursue a “regulatory reform agenda … to make the Canadian regulatory system more agile, transparent and responsive, so that businesses across the country can explore and act on new opportunities, resulting in benefits for all Canadians.
Budget 2018 allocated funding for targeted regulatory reviews in three initial key sectors:
1. agri-food and aquaculture;Canada Gazette, July 2018, Regulatory modernization — Request for stakeholder comments

3. transportation and infrastructure, including emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles. (italics ours)

What changes or tools should the Government consider to facilitate the development, integration, or approval of these technologies, processes, or products for Canadians?
