Business Owners! Want to help us cut red tape?

The Cape Breton Partnership & Victoria County want to know about the impact of municipal red tape with the goal of reducing it, including by aligning municipal regulations where it makes sense.

The survey is part of the Regulatory Modernization Pilot Project – a partnership between the Island’s five municipalities and the provincial Office of Regulatory Affairs and Service Effectiveness.

The survey asks for ‘pain points’ your business has encountered and takes about 12 minutes to complete AND you get a chance to win a one-on-one session with a Business Planning Advisor & a promotional package.

The survey will take approximately 12 minutes to complete and respondents have a chance to win a terrific prize for their business. Interested businesses are asked to fill out the survey and include their contact information to be entered in a draw to win a business planning and promotion package from the Cape Breton Partnership.

The survey is open until Wednesday, August 11, 2021 and is available here:

Printed copies available at the Baddeck Courthouse or by calling 902-295-3231.
