Public Information

Citizens' Council


The mandate of the Citizens’ Council is to discuss and respond to questions or topics posed by the Executive Officer and to develop a report that speaks to the discussion and response to the specific topic.

The Council is required to prepare a report that captures the opinions of Council members as they deliberate on a topic. The report will be presented to the Minister and the Executive Officer, and made publicly available so that Ontarians can learn about the views and values formed during the deliberative process.

Following the submission of a Council report, the Executive Officer (EO) will provide a response to the Report outlining how the Ministry will use their recommendations. Both the Council’s Report and the EO’s response will be published on the Government of Ontario’s website.
