Name of creator
The Standing Committee on Crown Corporations was established in February, 1946 to examine the annual reports and financial statements of the Province's Crown corporations and related agencies.
The Committee was originally named the Select Standing Committee on Crown Corporations and its name was changed to the Standing Committee on Crown Corporations in November, 1981.
The Committee was struck at the beginning of each Legislature, and lapsed upon dissolution of that Legislature. Membership was determined by a Special Nominating Committee at the beginning of each Legislature.
Between 1982 and 1991, the membership of the Standing Committee on Crown Corporations consisted of twenty Members. By 2003, nine members stood on the Committee.
The Committee was usually chaired by a member of Government. The ratio of party members within the committee reflected the proportion of seats held in the Assembly.
The Committee was permitted to meet both during and in between sessions. Daily substitutions by Members were also permitted in the Committee. It was served by a Clerk-at-the-Table of the Legislative Assembly.
The Standing Committee on Crown Corporations was dissolved in June, 2003 upon the recommendation of the Special Committee on Rules and Procedures. Since the commencement of the Twenty-fifth Legislature in 2004, the Standing Committee on Crown and Central Agencies has operated as a Policy Field Committee under the Standing Committee structure.
