The paper focuses on the specifics of public policies process in three countries: two of them are European Union members - Spain, and Portugal - and the third is located on the American continent - Canada. Choosing the three countries is due to the fact that the issues presented have a common point: they focus on the procedures for the transmission of documents in the framework of the process rather than on the activities of the ministries for public policies development and analysis. The last part of the paper examines comparatively the three countries described above (Spain, Portugal and Canada), highlighting similarities and differences between them. The specific elements of the public policies process of these countries are also described here, which could be used also in other countries in order to improve the process and to better meet citizens' needs and problems.
