Resolutions and Briefs

Resolutions passed at the Provincial Conference or National Convention/AGM often contain directives to urge the provincial or federal governments and/or as appropriate specific ministries to take some sort of action. These directives outlined in the approved resolution Therefore It Be Resolved statements are consolidated into a written brief for submission to the various government ministries, and leaders of the opposition parties. A copy of the brief is circulated to Club Presidents for use at the local and/or provincial levels, i.e. for issuing press releases, and/or arranging meetings with their community-based Member of Provincial Parliament representatives, (MPP), or Members of Federal Parliament (MP).
