Commission business is conducted primarily through its five standing committees – Systems Improvement, Legal Practice & Process, Data, Training, and Dual Status Task Force – as well as through other ad hoc committees such as the Legislative and Strategic Planning committees. Each committee is chaired by a Commissioner and members are drawn from the Commission, Collaborative Council, and others in the child protection community.

Committees oversee and monitor Commission projects, including the work of subcommittees and workgroups. For a complete list, please see Children's Commission Members.
