New Ontario website helps entrepreneurs launch faster


Toronto — The Ontario government has launched a website that aims to make it easier for entrepreneurs to start their own business.

The website Ontario.ca/business is one of the initiatives being implemented as part of the Fewer Fees, Better Services Act, which received Royal Assent on March 3, 2022, and builds on successive efforts to cut red tape and reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens for businesses.

It is intended to create a single window for business that will reduce administrative burdens and make it easier for Ontario business owners and entrepreneurs to access the information and services they need to get up-and-running, create jobs, and grow their business.

The Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade said in a news release that, over time, the website will develop into an intuitive, predictable and transparent source of information needed for new and growing businesses, with new tools added to meet the needs of entrepreneurs and business owners. The government hopes to take the confusion out of completing necessary paperwork and permits, including some that will be backed with a service guarantee.
