OTTAWA — Over the next year, the top-secret National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians plans to probe the threat foreign interference poses to Canada, and examine how the military collects and uses information about Canadians.
The committee gave notice this week of its planned studies for the year, all of which will happen behind closed doors.
The high-level oversight body was created in 2017, and mirrors similar committees set up in the other “Five Eyes” alliance countries. Members include MPs and Senators, who must have the highest level, or “top secret” security clearance.
