Q: What has the City done to cut red tape and reduce costs?

FACT: Mayor Nenshi established the Cut Red Tape program which made 45 separate process improvements and generated more than $14,675,000 in savings.

FACT: Mayor Nenshi received two honourable mentions for cutting red tape from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business Golden Scissors Awards. First in 2012 and again in 2015.

Over the last five years, the ZBR program has improved City services and generated more than $50 million in recurring, annual savings.

Over the next four years the City will continue the ZBR program and expand it to the “back of the house” to City functions like Law, Information Technology, and Human Resources to generate additional savings and reduce operating costs.

FACT: The City has found $325 million in savings and efficiencies  in the City’s operating budget since the economic downturn began in 2015. An additional $94 million has been saved on capital projects over the same timeframe.
