Under the NDP, Alberta was layered under extra layers of regulations, red tape, and damaging policies that held back our economy and job creators.
Alberta consistently scored an ‘F’ for red tape, suffocating businesses, making it more difficult to do business in Alberta.

That’s why we promised the Open for Business Act to liberate job creators and get Albertans back to work.

Combined with the Job Creation Tax Cut and repeal of the NDP’s carbon tax, it was one of the most comprehensive promises made to improve jobs and the economy in an election during Alberta’s history.
On May 27, we introduced the bill in the legislature and on July 18, 2019, it was signed into law.
