Public Consultations

As part of their work, parliamentary committees may hold a public consultation to seek input from British Columbians. This could include opportunities to provide a written or video submission, present to the committee, or complete a survey.    


Written input or submissions can be provided online, by email, or regular mail; committees may also accept video submissions. All input must be accompanied by a name and contact information, and organization information (if applicable). Some committees may provide guiding questions or templates to assist those interested in providing input.


Parliamentary committees may hold meetings, sometimes referred to as "public hearings," to receive presentations by individuals and organizations. Meetings may be held in person at the Parliament Buildings, in communities throughout the province, or via video/teleconference. Meeting locations, presentation format and timing, and selection of presenters are determined by each committee.  These meetings are public and audiocast live, and are recorded and transcribed by Hansard Services.  


Parliamentary committees may ask for input through a survey. Surveys are usually made available online through a committee's website. 

Please see our Privacy Policy for further information regarding input provided to committees.
