Regulations under the Modernizing Ontario for People and Businesses Act, 2020
Bill or Act:
Modernizing Ontario for People and Businesses Act, 2020
Summary of Proposal:
In July 2020, the government introduced the Modernizing Ontario for People and Businesses Act, 2020 (MOPBA). It received royal assent on July 21, 2020. The MOPBA merges the content of the Burden Reduction and Reporting Act, 2014 (BRRA) and the Reducing Regulatory Costs for Business Act, 2017 (RRCBA) and includes some new requirements. It is this government's new burden reduction legislation that creates obligations for all of Ontario's ministries to follow when creating new legislation, regulations, policies and forms.
Before the MOPBA can come into effect, regulations must be developed to support its implementation. The draft regulations are available for review in this posting.
The effective date of the regulations would be upon proclamation of the MOPBA.
The proposed regulations would not impose additional costs on Ontario businesses.
