* QPRC Audit  Risk and Improvement Committee

QPRC has an established ARIC that has operated since 2016.

The ARIC is an advisory committee to Council and plays a pivotal role in the governance framework by providing Council with independent oversight and monitoring of Council's audit processes, including internal control activities.

The ARIC achieves its independence by having a majority of independent members (currently three independent members that are external to Council and its operation) and one councillor.

Membership is based on a four-year term with the possibility for extension for another 4 year term.  

The ARIC operates under a Council endorsed Charter which is reviewed on an annual basis.
