Provincial Budget Highlights for Chamber Members
A lbertans are still talking about the new provincial government budget and it's impact on business and citizens as a whole.

The Alberta Chamber of Commerce prepared a brief overview of the budget for chamber members. The ACC will continue to analyze the budget and follow up as needed, but they are not expecting any major surprises.

"Alberta is at a crossroads, where the government's actions will have a profound impact on the health of our province and our economy for years to come. We asked for a comprehensive review of government finances, with all options on the table to restore our province's fiscal health – recognizing that this would mean some tough choices."
 
ACC President and CEO Ken Kobly on Budget 2019
Red Tape Reduction
Alberta Provincial Government
An Update on "Cutting Red Tape"

All collected submissions, surveys, and stories were gathered and provided to the Ministry of Red Tape Reduction. The information was then reviewed by Red Tape Reduction as actionable or not. Then Red Tape Reduction sent the actionable submissions to the appropriate Ministry for analysis. The Ministry then actions appropriately. This is an ongoing process.

The Small Business Panel that has been established to discuss concerns and items affecting their industry. This panel includes representatives from small businesses, associations assisting with small business growth and successful Alberta-founded companies that began as small business (see below link).
Industry panels will meet biannually and report directly to the Associate Minister of Red Tape Reduction.

In addition to the industry panels, the government is continuing to seek direct feedback from every Albertan through their website CutRedTape.alberta.ca and will continue to engage with small groups and industry leaders outside of the panels.
