English term or phrase:Joint Interparliamentary Council
The Joint Interparliamentary Council (JIC) operates under the authority of both the Speaker of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Commons. The JIC is responsible for determining all budgetary and administrative matters relating to parliamentary associations. Specifically, the JIC determines the level of the funding envelope needed by associations and makes a recommendation to the Standing Committee on Internal Economy, Budgets and Administration of the Senate and the Board of Internal Economy of the House of Commons to inform the process of determining the total funding level to be included in the Main Estimates of both Houses. Each House is responsible for providing funding in their respective Estimates to absorb their share (30% Senate and 70% House of Commons) of the total costs related to each association.
