"This year's Golden Scissors winners show how much governments can accomplish when they listen. Manitoba has modernized the way it does business in a big way, while Alberta is acting swiftly on direct red tape feedback from local small business owners and Albertans. As for Quebec, they were on our list for worst regulation in the country just last year, and they took the criticism to heart and fixed the issue," said Laura Jones, Executive Vice-President at CFIB. "This is the kind of transparency and accountability from our governments that Canadians deserve."

The 2020 Golden Scissors winners are being recognized for the following accomplishments:

CFIB also awarded two Golden Scissors honourable mentions:

"Cutting red tape isn't sexy and it often goes unnoticed," added Jones. "We want to change that and recognize the good work that is being done across the country."
