Under the NDP, Alberta consistently ranked at the bottom for red tape and regulatory burdens placed on businesses.
For the second year in a row, Alberta has received a failing grade on red tape for our job-creators: https://t.co/7qjvdQPZY6 It's time to restore the Alberta Advantage! pic.twitter.com/BEFE7zLdd2— Jason Kenney (@jkenney) January 23, 2018
The Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) said that Alberta’s ‘F’ grades were for “failing to support any comprehensive strategy for measuring, reporting or controlling the regulatory burden”.
In fact, under the NDP, Alberta was the only province in Canada to get an ‘F’ on our red tape burden.
For the NDP, they saw the increase of red tape under their watch as a good thing. Just like how they saw the increase of taxes on job creators and new carbon taxes as progress.
Today I announced our plan to cut job-killing red tape by one-third and reignite our economy.— Jason Kenney (@jkenney) March 6, 2019
It's time to get Alberta working again!

The NDP got an 'F' for red tape. That means it was harder to do business in Alberta, and that led to job losses.— United Conservative Party of Alberta (@Alberta_UCP) July 5, 2019
The UCP promised to cut red tap, and we did. Alberta is open for business again! #ableg pic.twitter.com/aFRGDIEwhB
We put in place a minister in charge of cutting red tape across government. We let Albertans provide input and feedback with a massive response.
And we’re getting results.
Nice! 🙌— United Conservative Party of Alberta (@Alberta_UCP) January 21, 2020

In the first red tape report card under our United Conservative government, we received the highest-ever grade when it comes to removing government regulations. We went from an ‘F’ to a ‘B-’ with only seven months in charge.
But we’re not at all satisfied. We’ll continue to cut red tape until we reach our targets so our economy can reach its full potential.
