The caucus of each recognized political party and Independent Members are provided with resources to support Members in carrying out their parliamentary functions. Operating and capital budgets for caucuses and Independent Members are approved by the Legislative Assembly Management Committee on an annual basis. Budget allocations are formula driven and subsequently adjusted to reflect any mid-year changes in a caucus (e.g., in the event of the resignation of a Member, or a cabinet shuffle which changes the number of Ministers and Private Members in a caucus, or following a provincial general election). Funding for caucus and Independent Member budgets is provided from the Legislative Assembly’s annual Vote 1 budget, as approved by the Legislative Assembly Management Committee and submitted to the Minister of Finance for inclusion in the annual provincial Estimates.
