1. Introduction

This report has been prepared pursuant to paragraph 13 of the Terms of Reference (See Annex A) of the Independent Advisory Board for Senate Appointments (Advisory Board) which states:

  • Reporting
  • 13 (1) Within three months after submitting the names of qualified candidates to the Prime Minister, under the transitional process and following each subsequent appointment process, the Advisory Board must provide a report, in both official languages, to the Prime Minister that contains information on the process, including on the execution of the terms of reference, the costs relating to the Advisory Board’s activities and statistics relating to the applications received.
  • (2) In addition, the report may provide recommendations for improvements to the process.
  • (3) The report must be made public.

This is the fourth report of the Advisory Board, which covers the Spring 2018 cycle. The Advisory Board’s previous reports are available on our website.

2. Establishment of the Advisory Board

The Advisory Board is an independent and non-partisan body whose mandate is to provide non-binding merit-based recommendations to the Prime Minister on Senate nominations. It was established by the Governor in Council (GIC) on January 19, 2016 (Order in Council PC 2016-0011). The Terms of Reference (See Annex A) for the Advisory Board were also approved by the GIC and made public through the same Order in Council. Members of the Advisory Board are appointed pursuant to paragraph 127.1(1)(c) of the Public Service Employment Act as special advisers to the Prime Minister.

The Advisory Board consists of three permanent federal members, one of whom is appointed as Chairperson, and two members chosen from each of the provinces/territories where a vacancy is to be filled. The federal members participate in deliberations related to all vacancies, whereas the provincial/territorial members participate in deliberations related to vacancies in their respective province/territory. Federal members were appointed in April 2018, the Chairperson was reappointed in July 2018, while appointments for provincial/territorial members were made between April 2018 and July 2018.

Further information on the establishment of the Advisory Board and the previous processes can be found on our website. Biographical notes for members involved in the cycle covered by this report can be found in Annex B.

3. Implementation of the appointments process

Since its establishment in January 2016, the Advisory Board has conducted four Senate appointments cycles, with the most recent cycle launched on February 21, 2018. On this date, the Minister of Democratic Institutions also announced some enhancements to the Senate appointments process, including:

  • keeping applications open year-round, so Canadians are able to apply for a Senate appointment at any time;
  • retaining submitted applications for two years, so that individuals can be considered for appointment to the Senate throughout the two years following the submission of their application; and
  • adding the ability for organizations or individuals to nominate potential candidates.

Spring 2018 Cycle

The Spring 2018 cycle sought to fill 17 current and anticipated 2018 vacancies in Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Yukon.

4. Application process

As with every cycle since the summer of 2016, Canadians had the opportunity to apply directly for an appointment to the Senate. Applicants applied online through the Senate Appointments Self-Serve system. The Advisory Board encouraged Canadians to apply by April 3, 2018.

Note

For the Yukon, the Advisory Board decided to conduct further outreach activities to ensure the broadest number of Yukoners were made aware of the opportunity and had a chance to apply. A new call for Yukon applications was launched in July and closed four weeks later on August 8, 2018.

Applicants who had submitted an application package in the preceding two years were not required to submit a new application. However, they could update any of their documents and those updates were considered by the Advisory Board.

5. Analysis of applications

3,232
applicants

The Advisory Board received 670 new applications during the Spring 2018 cycle. This is in addition to the 2,562 applicants who already had a valid application package on record. Therefore, a total of 3,232 applications were reviewed by the Advisory Board. The pool of applicants included a diverse slate of individuals with a wide breadth of backgrounds, skills, knowledge and experience.

Note: 180 individuals were nominated for a Senate appointment. Of this number, 60% submitted or had already submitted an application for consideration by the Advisory Board.

Gender

Of the 3,232 applicants, 40% were women. In comparison, the population estimate in Canada of women on July 1, 2017 was just over 50%.Footnote 1

This pie chart presents data for gender. Gender - Male: 60%. Female: 40%.

First Official Language

Applicants were required to identify their first official language. The majority of applicants identified English as their first official language (73%), whereas 27% identified French as their first official language. The representation of applicants who identified French as their first official language was greater when compared with the Canadian population (27% vs. 22.2%).Footnote 2

This pie chart presents data for first official language. First Official Language - English: 73%. French: 27%.

Bilingualism

Applicants were asked to identify their proficiency in their second official language. Almost half of applicants indicated they were bilingual at a fluent or functional level.

A further breakdown of the data by province/territory can be found in Annex E.

6. Consultations and outreach

1,765
organizations

The Advisory Board’s ongoing outreach efforts aim to ensure that a diverse slate of individuals, with a variety of backgrounds, skills, knowledge and experience desirable for a well-functioning Senate are brought forward.

Early in March 2018, the Advisory Board engaged with national, provincial/territorial and local organizations to share information regarding the appointment process broadly among Canadians. Organizations were invited to reach out to their members and networks to identify high-calibre candidates who met the assessment criteria and encourage them to apply.

In total, to help ensure that the largest number of individuals were made aware of the process, the Advisory Board more than doubled the number of organizations that were contacted in the Winter 2017 cycle. The Advisory Board reached out to 1,765 organizations across the country, focusing on the 10 provinces and territories targeted for this cycle. This includes the second round of outreach conducted with Yukon organizations in July 2018.

A full list of the organizations can be found on the Advisory Board’s website. These organizations represented Indigenous peoples, women, people with disabilities, LGBTQ2S groups, linguistic, minority and ethnic communities, service groups, educational and academic organizations, professional and regulatory organizations, the not-for-profit sector, as well as labour and business interests.

7. Meetings of the Advisory Board

A total of 11 deliberation meetings were held for the Spring 2018 cycle. Most of these meetings were held in-person in Ottawa, with some members at times participating remotely. Tele/video conferences were also used over the course of the cycle to provide updates, engage in discussions and minimize costs related to travel.

As noted in the Terms of Reference, the Advisory Board is supported by the Privy Council Office (PCO), and the head of the Senior Personnel Secretariat (or her delegate) acts as the ex officio secretary to the Advisory Board.

8. Review process

Members of the Advisory Board conducted a comprehensive review of the applications submitted for their consideration. Federal members reviewed all applications, while the provincial/territorial members reviewed only those that were received for their province/territory.

Once the members completed their individual reviews, the provincial/territorial advisory boards convened to undertake their deliberations. This was consistent with the approach used for previous cycles. The meeting concluded with a list of recommendations to the Prime Minister. Decisions were achieved using a consensus approach. We note that two members recused themselves from the review and discussions regarding specific applicants due to personal relationships.

The assessment criteria, as provided by the Prime Minister, were used as the foundation for the review of applications and were applied in a fair and consistent manner.

The recommended candidates were subject to the due diligence required for those seeking public office to confirm their suitability.

At all times, the members observed the highest standards of impartiality, integrity, objectivity and confidentiality in consideration of candidates.

9. Recommendation process

The Advisory Board established a list of qualified candidates for each of the targeted vacancies in the timeframe requested for submitting recommendations. The Prime Minister was provided with a package that included the list of recommended candidates in alphabetical order (i.e. without ranking or prioritization). The package included a short synopsis to highlight the merits of each of the recommended candidates, as well as the application form, curriculum vitae and reference letters provided by the candidates.

10. Costs

In all cycles, the Advisory Board made efforts to minimize expenses. Further to our previous report, we are pleased to provide the final costs for the Winter 2017 cycle. Total costs for the Winter 2017 cycle were $414,016. This included travel expenditures related to the Advisory Board’s work and members’ per diems (within the range of $550 - $650 for the Chairperson and $375 - $450 for other members), totaling $52,502. This represented the work of nine Advisory Board members; three federal members as well as two provincial members for each of the provinces involved (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Ontario). The remainder of the expenses are incremental costs incurred by PCO to support the Advisory Board, including salaries and translation costs.   

Expenses for the Spring 2018 cycle are still being processed. Estimated costs are in the range of $550,000. Of that amount, estimated travel expenditures for the Advisory Board’s in-person meetings and per diems for the work of the 21 members involved in this cycle would total approximately $160,000. In the next report, given the new ongoing nature of the application and appointments process, and for administrative efficiency purposes, costs will be reported on a fiscal year (i.e. April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019) basis. These costs will include expenditures incurred during this cycle.

In accordance with the Advisory Board’s Terms of Reference, the costs stated in these reports relate to the Advisory Board’s activities. Additional costs incurred by PCO are part of PCO’s operations and are reported through the department’s reporting to Parliament.

11. Post-announcement

All applicants who were not appointed to the Senate received or will receive a message expressing the Advisory Board’s appreciation for their participation and reminding them that their application will be retained for a period of two years. We will also express our appreciation to the organizations that encouraged individuals to apply and look forward to their continued engagement in future Senate appointment cycles.

12. Confidentiality

In keeping with the Terms of Reference, the Advisory Board’s activities were conducted with strict confidentiality. Information that was brought before the members was held in confidence and information on candidacies was not disclosed, pursuant to the provisions of the Access to Information Act and Privacy Act. Therefore, the Advisory Board has not and will not publicly share any information pertaining to candidates.

13. Conclusion

The Advisory Board members are honored and appreciate the opportunity to serve their country on such an important initiative.
