Canada Invited to Comment on Canada-U.S. Regulatory Cooperation Council

Earlier this year Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Barack Obama announced the Canada – US Regulatory Cooperation Council, which has a two-year mandate to promote economic growth and provide benefits to businesses and consumers through increased regulatory transparency and coordination between the two countries.  

The federal government has asked NMMA Canada to provide input on items that affect cross-border trade with the United States, as well as how dealing with these issues would produce benefits for Canadians and Canadian business. The government is asking for our views on areas where meaningful progress can be made in the short-term, because simplifying rules and reducing red tape lead to lower costs for business and consumers, and ultimately to more jobs.

NMMA Executive Director Sara Anghel invites comments and constructive feedback from all in the Canadian recreational boating industry. Ensure your views are heard in Ottawa by sharing your concerns with Sara at by May 27, 2011.
