The College has several statutory and non-statutory committees on which Council members and some non-Council members serve. Statutory committees are those the College must have according to the Social Work and Social Service Work Act (the “Act”). Non-statutory committees are those the College Council may establish on an as-needed basis.

The composition of the statutory committees are prescribed by the Act, however, the composition of the non-statutory committees may be determined by Council.
