General Committee Information

Committees play a key role in the Parliamentary process. 

They enable Members to:
  • Examine complex matters in detail – this can be done more effectively by a small group than by the entire House of Commons;
  • Hear from experts on topics of national concern, and have this evidence placed on the public record; and,
  • Examine policies and programs, and increase expertise in specific areas.  A committee is not a final decision-making body.  When it has finished considering a matter, it presents its findings and recommendations in a report to the House of Commons.  Committees can influence policies and decision-making and their reports may include a request that the government respond to its recommendations within 120 days.
