The governing board has created committees to collaborate with the implementation of the Federation’s mission or that of certain projects. The roles of these committees are to inform or support the governing board regarding strategic issues. There are permanent committees, and, when needed by certain projects, temporary adhoc committees are also put in place. The committees will sometimes need to call on external resources in order to reach their goals.
Committees are managed under the governance policies that the FCPQ has put in place and are subordinate to the governing board. When a committee is no longer required at the end of its mandate, it is de facto terminated.
