Between national conventions, administration of the Party is performed by the
National Executive which is a body comprised of nationally-elected officers and
committee chairs as well as representatives from each provincial or territorial
association, the national commissions, the national caucus and the Leader. The
executive is bound by the national constitution to meet at least three times
per year to direct programs and policies of the Party.
Under the overall direction of the national executive, the Party's many
activities are governed by the actions of a number of committees. These
include: management committee, financial management committee, standing
committee on policy development, standing committee on organization, standing
committee on communications and publicity, standing committee on the
constitution and legal affairs, standing committee on multiculturalism,
national platform committee, and the national campaign committee.
