SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS

June 22, 2017 - Bill C-22 - An Act to establish the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians and to make consequential amendments to certain Acts (Given Royal Assent)

May 30, 2016 - "Despite a Liberal Party campaign pledge to create a committee to “monitor and oversee” national security agencies, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale appeared to be backing away from that vow Monday at the Senate national security committee.  “As committee members know, our government has committed to establish a committee of parliamentarians to review and scrutinize the security and intelligence activities of all departments,” said Goodale" - Goodale not committing to ‘oversight’ function for all-party security committee - iPolitics

January 28, 2016 - "There's working with the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness on a proposal to create a statutory committee of parliamentarians to review government agencies with national security responsibilities. Again, to be clear, this was envisaged to include not only agencies under the purview of the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness but also other national security agencies that would exist in other departments, such as National Defence, and conceivably, Immigration or other departments. It was a horizontal mandate across the government." - Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs

January 8, 2016 - "One of the promises he made was to create an all-party committee to monitor and oversee the operations of every government department and agency with national security responsibilities. A spokesperson for Goodale said that remains a priority for the government, and the minister and McGuinty will meet with their U.K. counterparts to learn more about how they handle parliamentary oversight on national security." - Goodale, McGuinty head to U.K., France to talk counterterrorism, Parliamentary committee - iPolitics

"The National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians Act mandates the Committee to review:

the legislative, regulatory, policy, administrative and financial framework for national security and intelligence;
any activity carried out by a department that relates to national security or intelligence, unless the activity is an ongoing operation and the appropriate Minister determines that the review would be injurious to national security;
any matter relating to national security or intelligence that a minister of the Crown refers to the Committee.
Committee members come from both Houses of Parliament. All hold Top Secret security clearances and are permanently bound to secrecy under the Security of Information Act. Members swear an oath or solemn affirmation indicating that they will obey and uphold the laws of Canada, and not communicate or inappropriately use information obtained in confidence as part their responsibilities on the Committee. On this basis, members are able to receive classified briefings and materials related to the conduct of the Committee’s work." - About - National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians (NSICOP)
