The Standing Committee on Families and Communities is a legislative policy committee with a mandate that relates to the areas of Children’s Services, Community and Social Services, Education, Health, Justice and Solicitor General, Seniors and Housing and Service Alberta.
A legislative policy committee reviews Bills referred to it, and may review any regulation, amendment to a regulation or prospective regulation within its mandate either on its own initiative or at the request of a Minister. A committee may also, on its own initiative or at the request of a Minister, inquire into and report on public policy matters within its mandate or inquire into, consider and report on any matter within its remit referred to it by the Assembly. Referrals of Bills, regulations or other subject matter by order of the Assembly take priority over any other hearing or inquiry. All legislative policy committees are standing committees, and thus exist for the life of a Legislature.
