Potential impacts of cuts to jobs and services:

  • Higher user fees.
  • Less enforcement of laws and regulations; more reliance on industry self-regulation.
  • Programs and services delivered less frequently or not at all.
  • Contracting-out or privatizing services that result in companies cutting corners on quality to maximize profits.
  • Delays and increased wait times for processing government forms and legal documents.
  • Greater risk to the privacy of your personal information.
  • Less accountability to the public.
  • Less spending in communities where there are job losses.
  • Increased use of consultants, leading to higher program costs.
  • Less transparency due to Freedom of Information laws not applying to programs moved outside of government.
  • Government will be left with a policy-making function but will lack the capacity and resources for enforcement and front-line service delivery.
