Doug Ford's Parliamentary Assistant List

What Are Parliamentary Assistants?

Typically known as a position under the Minister, with responsibilities for the portfolios.
"Parliamentary assistants support ministers with legislative and committee matters, including special projects and assignments that require dedicated leadership. They also play a key role in building relationships and communicating government initiatives across the province."

How Do I Use Them in My Government Relation's Engagement?

TheCCSGroup usually takes the approach of having as many conversations with as many people in government surrounding your issues.

Meeting with these officials can provide you with the following benefits:
  • Line-of-sight into the current thinking of Government and specifically the Minister surrounding your issue,
  • Some of these officials are close to the Minister, and can be another advocate and supportive voice for your cause.
  • In some cases, Parliamentary Assistants are given specific files to ‘oversee’ on behalf of the Minister.  At that point, they can become extremely important in advancing your issue.
