Legislative Assembly Launching Live Web Streaming of Committee Meetings September 1, 2017

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, August 30, 2017 – Beginning September 1, 2017, the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island will live stream and video archive committee proceedings at www.assembly.pe.ca. The stream will also be broadcast on the Assembly’s Facebook page.  

The Assembly is committed to helping people understand, engage and participate in their democracy. This initiative has the potential to engage people who do not normally take an active role in the work of legislative committees.

Streaming of committee proceedings continues the initiative of televising the proceedings of the House and providing a valuable service to all Islanders by keeping them informed of the important work of their elected representatives. Live streaming committee meetings is another step forward in the Legislative Assembly’s efforts to expand its outreach to citizens, school rooms, and communities across the Island.

Committee meetings will be held in the Legislative Chamber in the Honourable George Coles Building when the Legislative Assembly is not in session. When the House is in session, meetings will be held in the Committee Room on the first floor of the J. Angus McLean Building. The public can watch on the Assembly website at www.assembly.pe.ca or the Legislative Assembly Facebook live page.

Standing committees consist of up to eight Members of the Legislative Assembly who represent all elected parties and study issues of importance to Islanders by inviting expert opinion and hearing from Islanders through public consultation. Special committees can also be appointed to investigate a specific issue. Committee work is reported to the Legislative Assembly for the benefit of all Members.

For more information on this new Assembly initiative, please visit the Assembly at assembly.pe.ca or contact Emily Doiron, Clerk Assistant at 902-368-5972.
