Committees of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta are an important part of the legislative process in Alberta’s parliamentary democracy.

Committees allow for an in-depth review of issues and permit public and stakeholder input into the legislative process through written submissions and hearings.

The basis for the mandate and powers for each standing committee is set out in the Standing Orders. A government motion often sets the mandate for select special committees.

A committee is the master of its own proceedings, but its activities must remain within an established scope of business outlined in the Standing Orders.

Beginning July 6, 2020, limited public and media gallery seating is available for scheduled committee meetings on a first-come, first-served basis. Pre-registration is required. Attendees should undertake the self-assessment available through Alberta Health Services and those exhibiting symptoms should not visit the building. Attendees are required to wear a face mask at all times while within the building

As always, the proceedings of the committees can also be viewed on Assembly Online and Assembly TV.

To register for on-site attendance, please Reserve Your Seat or contact Committee.Admin@assembly.ab.ca.
