The highest level of authority within an Episcopal Conference is the Plenary Assembly. Meetings of the Plenary Assembly of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) are held at least once annually. Between Plenary Assemblies, the general work, policy questions and other decisional matters of the CCCB are carried out by the Permanent Council. The Permanent Council of the CCCB is assisted by the Executive Committee, which has principal responsibility for promoting and coordinating the initiatives of the CCCB, for ensuring the execution of the resolutions of the Plenary Assembly and the Permanent Council, for overseeing financial matters of the CCCB, and responding to issues as they arise.
