Case Studies:

Instrument Choice:

An agile regulatory system relies on the regulators’ ability to assess the effectiveness of regulatory and non-regulatory instruments to achieve policy objectives. These case studies will explore the types of instrument and assess the pros and cons to determine the best instruments in a context of a rapid and technology driven change, and new business models. 

Regulatory Experimentation:

To ensure the regulatory system can keep pace with advances in technology and innovation, regulators need controlled environments where they can experiment with new technologies without compromising the safety of Canadians. The use of experimentation pilots is the obvious solution as they contribute to foster innovation and build strong partnerships between the public and private sector. These case studies will offer practical examples of how this approach has been used in Canada and internationally. 

Regulatory Engagement:

Regulators are being challenged to expand on traditional consultation methods to meaningfully engage stakeholders throughout development, management and review of regulations. For the system to be more conducive to innovation, the relationship between the industry and regulators needs to fundamentally change with the support of an ongoing dialogue. These case studies will help clarify how opportunities can be fostered and risks managed.

Regulatory Cooperation:

Cooperation and alignment of regulations across jurisdictions is key for an agile regulatory system, offering a tone of benefits to regulators and those subject to regulation. Yet, bringing it about is far from straightforward. These case studies will offer insights into how to get started, build support and maintain momentum to realize the vision of a more streamlined and less burdensome regulatory system where an effective harmony of inter jurisdictional regulations overbear.

Risk Based Oversight:

In an effort to make regulation more efficient and effective, risk-based approaches are being used to shift from one-size-fit-all to a data-driven segmented approach. These case studies will explore practical examples of how this approach is being used in Canada and other jurisdictions.

Ethical Business Regulations (EBR): 

EBR introduces a new paradigm in compliance and enforcement based on behavioral science & ethics. EBR provides the basis for an effective relationship between business and its regulators resulting in better outcomes. Case studies will explore the benefits of EBR as currently used from regulators in UK.

Transformation of Regulatory Services:

We often associate these days transformation with digitalization of the regulatory service delivery environment. However, the transformation goes beyond just digitalization to encompass new business practices designed to increase communication and efficiency between the regulator and the regulatee. These case studies will explore areas where the transformation has begun and share lessons learned.
