Below you will find information sources about Canadian Royal Commissions

Royal Commissions

Royal Commissions are established under a general Inquires Act by issuing an Order in Council. The terms of reference, powers, and commissioners are listed in the Order in Council, which is published in the Canada Gazette Part 1. The Commissions have the power to conduct public hearings, request submissions and call witnesses for the purpose of fact finding, information gathering, public opinion sampling, and policy initiation. The government is not required to accept the recommendations of the Commission.
