Government Relations Committees

A primary objective of ACSESS is to actively represent the industry and our membership before governments by providing input on employment legislation and regulations at the national and provincial levels. At the same time, ACSESS assumes a leadership role in ensuring that industry members are aware of legislation and regulatory changes which may affect their businesses and responsibilities as employers.

The ACSESS National Government Relations Committee is responsible for setting legislative priorities on an annual basis, devising strategy and allocating the necessary time and resources to ensure that we are well positioned to address emerging issues in a timely manner. The following is a list of our sub-committee mandates and representatives.
