TORONTO — The Less Red Tape, More Common Sense Act, 2023 would, if passed, build on the Ontario government’s efforts to reduce regulatory burden.
The Fall 2023 Red Tape Reduction Package includes three new measures within the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA)
Amending the Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act: Ontario is proposing amendments to the Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act that would reduce confusion, provide greater clarity, and reduce red tape for agricultural and horticultural societies, and agricultural associations.
Amending the Nutrient Management Act: Ontario is proposing to update a regulation under the Nutrient Management Act, 2002 that would correct a reference to a company that no longer provides verification services for incinerators so that producers can obtain verification from the right companies to ensure incinerators meet performance standards.
Updating the Farm Registration and Farm Organizations Funding Act: Ontario is proposing to revoke un-proclaimed sections in the Farm Registration and Farm Organizations Act that, would reduce confusion and provide clarity for stakeholders.
