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.

Watch a Committee Meeting In Person

Effective September 7, 2021, the number of available gallery seats in the committee rooms has been reduced to ensure adequate physical distancing. Masks are required for those in attendance in the galleries.

Members and staff are encouraged to participate in committee meetings remotely to limit in-person contacts. Those attending a committee meeting in person must wear a mask at all times, unless they are speaking.

The health and safety of Members, staff, and visitors remains the top priority for the Legislative Assembly of Alberta. The need for any future restrictions will continue to be assessed based on the advice of the Chief Medical Officer of Health.

As always, committee proceedings can also be viewed on Assembly Online and Assembly TV.
