The Royal Commission held both public and private roundtables on various topics, often related to the release of a specific issues paper. Roundtables were generally convened by at least one Commissioner and enabled government and non-government representatives, regulators, policy experts, academics, survivors and advocacy groups to discuss key policy issues.
We invited people with specific expertise to participate in these discussions, while making transcripts and audio recordings of public roundtables available on our website for the public to access.
Private roundtables allowed for more focused consultation with invited participants and a forum for participants to directly exchange views with each other. Transcripts and recordings were not published, and public access was not granted.
