Administrative Burden Baseline - 2014 Baseline Year

In its Red Tape Reduction Action Plan, the Government committed to build on the efforts of the Paperwork Burden Reduction Initiative by requiring departments, through the Administrative Burden Baseline, to provide a count of the requirements in federal regulations that impose an administrative burden on business.

All federal regulations administered by the Agriculture and Agri-Food Portfolio that have requirements that impose administrative burden on business are identified below. The total 2014 count is 1,972.

Administrative burden includes planning, collecting, processing and reporting of information, completing forms and retaining data required by the federal government to comply with a regulation. This includes filling out license applications and forms, as well as finding and compiling data for audits and becoming familiar with information requirements. A complete list of activities considered to be Administrative Burden can be found on the Treasury Board of Canada website.
