Parliamentary committee public consultations in British Columbia

As part of its consultation process, a parliamentary committee seeks public input on topics or questions contained in its terms of reference. Individuals, groups and organizations are all encouraged to provide their input. This can be done by writing to the committee (written submission), appearing as a witness at a public hearing, or by completing an online survey. Audio and video submissions are also accepted. By providing us with your own insights, observations and opinions, you are assisting the committee in making informed decisions

Your Privacy

The Parliamentary Committees Office of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia takes appropriate safeguards to protect an individual’s personal information collected during public consultation processes. In order to make a submission to a parliamentary committee, the submitter’s personal contact information is necessary for verification purposes. This personal contact information can only be viewed by Legislative Assembly staff, and is not shared with any third parties. Presentations made at public hearings are audio-recorded and transcribed. A publicly available transcript and audio file will be posted to the parliamentary committee website. The names of all participating organizations and individuals will be listed in the committee’s final report. The report is released at the conclusion of the committee inquiry and can be downloaded from the parliamentary committee website. Submissions to parliamentary committees are considered public documents and can be made available upon request to interested parties following the release of the final report. To protect privacy, the Parliamentary Committees Office removes an individual’s personal contact information prior to disclosing any submissions.
