Committees regularly invite individuals, experts, groups and organizations, lobbyists, public servants and ministers of the Crown to appear as witnesses.
Anyone interested in participating in a study may submit written testimony (known as a brief) or make a request to appear before a committee by contacting that committee’s clerk. Learn more about contributing to a Senate committee study (PDF).
