The Progress Monitoring Committee released its initial six-month report and monitoring plan today, May 1. Both are required under its terms of reference.

The committee, led by Founding Chair Linda Lee Oland, monitors and reports on the implementation of recommendations in the final report of the Mass Casualty Commission.

“Achieving the Mass Casualty Commission’s vision for systemic social change will take leadership, collaboration and partnership,” said Ms. Oland. “The reports made to the Progress Monitoring Committee so far have been encouraging. I am proud of the foundational and monitoring work we’ve done in our first six months to ensure the governments of Canada and Nova Scotia and the RCMP are accountable to the public for their progress going forward.”

The six-month update covers the period from late September, when the committee first met, to March 31. It includes:

  • a summary of committee meetings and its work to date
  • an overview of the initiatives undertaken by the federal and provincial governments and the RCMP
  • the monitoring plan, which sets out how progress will be assessed.

The committee will issue its first annual report following the September 2024 meeting.

Quick Facts:

  • Ms. Oland was appointed to the role of founding chair for one year; her term ends on May 31
  • the Progress Monitoring Committee meets quarterly; the next meeting will be held in Ottawa in June
