Ottawa, Ontario –  Niagara Centre Member of Parliament, Vance Badawey is pleased to announce that he has been selected by his peers to serve as Vice-Chair of The Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations (REGS).

REGS is tasked with reviewing and scrutinizing regulations and other statutory instruments that have been passed by Parliament. 

The Committee serves as an overview body which ensures that regulations have been implemented in a way that complies with the letter, and spirit, of the law. 

While all House of Commons Committees include members from each official party, REGS is unique in that it is one of only two committees comprised of both Parliamentarians and Senators.[1]  This dynamic encourages informed, purposeful, and non-partisan discussion to occur.

“I am very much looking forward to my new role as Vice-Chair of The Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations.  This is a wonderful opportunity to work with my colleagues from the House, as well as members of the Senate, in order to address the pressing need to examine the existing backlog of regulations,” says Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey. “My intent is to increase the accountability and efficiency of government Departments through thoughtful discussions with my Committee colleagues and government officials.”
