Policy Development and Governance

How to suggest a policy

All members of the community have the ability to bring forward a policy by using the Needs Assessment Form and working with the policy coordinator to develop the proposal and bring the policy forward to the Policy Advisory Committee (“PAC”) for consideration.The rest of the process is outlined in the Policy on Administrative Policies, which was approved by the Cabinet in November 2018.

Policy approval

As set out in the Policy on Administrative Policies approved by the Cabinet in November 2018, the review and approval cycle advances from the Policy Advisory Committee up to the Cabinet prior to publication.
