Many of the most important and valued services for the people of our province are delivered through Agencies, Boards and Commissions, including health care, education, and housing. In addition, Agencies, Boards and Commissions also provide Government with expert advice that informs and guides our decisions and policy development.
We want to make certain the process for appointing individuals to Agencies, Boards and Commissions is open and transparent. A process based on merit will help ensure the people appointed bring the best skills, qualifications and experience to the job and improve organizational performance.
The Public Service Commission and Independent Appointments Commission will lead this process, which is the strongest commitment to removing politics from appointments in the history of Newfoundland and Labrador, and one of the strongest in Canada.
We encourage you to explore this webpage, learn more about our Agencies, Boards and Commissions, the new appointments process, and opportunities for you to play an active role in your Government.
Honourable Dwight Ball
Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador
