Small Business Suggestion Box

This suggestion box gives businesses the opportunity to provide feedback on regulations or other aspects of government. We want to know what works or doesn’t work, and how you think things can be improved. Please complete a separate form for each suggestion.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, as it will inform our ongoing efforts. Note that to request individual help for your business (i.e. if stuck in a current regulatory or permitting matter), contact the Small Business Ombudsman instead of using this form.
