New Brunswick government launching two-month review of legislative officers

FREDERICTON — The New Brunswick government is launching a review of its legislative officers.

The province says the two-month review is aimed at improving efficiency.

New Brunswick currently has eight legislative officers, including the auditor general, the access to information and privacy commissioner, the chief electoral officer and the ombudsman.

The provinces of Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador all have four or five legislative officers.

A final report with recommendations will be delivered to the legislative administration committee early next year.
