The Authority, Duties and Terms of Reference of the New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island Educational Computer Network Committee (NB/PEI ECN)

- The Network Committee shall determine priorities for support of the services outlined in Appendix B and C of the Network Agreement or to subsequent agreed amended services.
