This page a brief overview of who the provincial/territorial government decision makers are:

Cabinet Ministers

Legislative Committees

Cabinet ministers are some of the most influential decision-makers in government, as they oversee policies and programs related to their ministry and mandate. The number of ministers and their exact portfolios varies across the country. When a cabinet member is appointed, they receive a ‘mandate letter’ from the Premier outlining what they are expected to do in their role as cabinet minister.


Each province and territory will have similar ministries, ministers, and mandate letters that will be relevant to your engagement.

Committee Members study issues and review legislation, connecting with them can help put a perspective or issue on their agenda.
