Yukoners need to be able to access government services in a timely and convenient manner. Similarly, Yukon businesses require an environment that facilitates their ability to operate in a modern, responsive regulatory environment.
A Yukon Liberal government will:

- reduce red tape and regulatory burdens for small business while maintaining standards for business operations;
- reduce red tape for Yukoners accessing services and enhance the availability of services online, and
- expand opportunities to introduce/provide more eHealth, eJustice, eEducation and e-Commerce services to Yukon’s communities.
