TSSA currently works with 10 Advisory Councils, they are:
How are Members selected?
The composition of each industry advisory council is as much as possible, reflective of most stakeholders in its respective industry. A membership matrix for industry advisory councils is established and reviewed annually by the CEO and the industry advisory council concerned.
The Consumers Advisory Council includes members with a variety of backgrounds in public safety and consumer representation and includes representatives of consumer organizations operating in Ontario and nationally. All council members are independent of TSSA and its CEO.
How often do Advisory Councils meet?
Most industry advisory councils meet twice per year. The Consumers Advisory Council meets three times per year. Councils conduct more frequent meetings when necessary.
Support for all Advisory Councils:
TSSA supports all advisory councils through scheduling of meetings, preparation of agendas, drafting of minutes and maintenance of all other Council records. The Corporate Secretary is responsible for the effectiveness of TSSA's support of advisory councils.
