Auditions

Une commission peut organiser une audition d'experts lorsqu'elle estime que celle-ci est indispensable pour ses travaux sur une question déterminée. Les auditions peuvent aussi être conduites conjointement par deux commissions ou plus. La plupart des commissions organisent régulièrement des auditions, qui leur permettent de connaître les points de vue d'experts et de débattre sur de grands enjeux. Vous trouverez sur la présente page tous les renseignements utiles sur les auditions organisées par les commissions, notamment les programmes et les interventions des orateurs.
