Protocol for Member of Parliament inquiries
To ensure that the Minister’s office is aware of requests from Members of Parliament, all requests from elected individuals (i.e., Members of Parliament, Senators, Members of a Provincial/Territorial Legislature, Mayors, or their representatives) are sent to a designated Ministerial staff, via the Departmental Assistant, within 24 hours of contact.
This is done through the completion of a Member of Parliament Inquiry form which provides information on who made a request for information, their contact information, who was contacted, and what was requested.
Once the form is received by the Minister’s office, Ministerial staff advise the Department of any required follow up, or if this is an inquiry they would like to address via the Minister’s office.
