The federal and provincial working groups will mainly drive the PRMI implementation. These groups will include national and subnational regulators, business associations, and chambers of commerce. In addition to having their own PIUs, the working groups will work closely with PMU to undertake a fast-tracked elimination of unnecessary RLCOs (including an optional use of guillotine approach), simplification, and automation of regulatory processes within their jurisdiction. Similarly, the provincial working groups led by their respective chief secretaries will be vital for driving the reform process. They will also include members from the local chambers of commerce, regulators, and relevant provincial secretaries representing their respective departments.
