The Legislative Assembly of British Columbia’s Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services conducts public hearings around the province each fall. The Committee hears presentations from individuals, associations, organizations, and corporate enterprise on priorities for next year’s provincial budget. You can learn more about the committee and the consultation process here.

It is common for educational organizations and professional organizations to make presentations. In light of UBC’s continuous operational budget cuts and the public misunderstanding of what AAPS members do at the University, it is important that AAPS participates in these public hearings on an annual basis.
