The Report to Canadians provides the public with an annual update on Members' parliamentary activities. It also summarizes, based on the priorities laid out in the Strategic Plan, the Administration's accomplishments in support of Members and the institution. A Financial Report is also included.
During the 41st Parliament, the Board of Internal Economy adopted the House of Commons Policy on Preventing and Addressing Harassment, which applies to Members and House Officers as employers, to their employees, and to Research Office employees. The policy addresses harassment prevention, processes for filing informal and formal complaints, investigating and reporting, appeals, and communicating findings. The Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs also adopted the Code of Conduct for Members of the House of Commons: Sexual Harassment, which came into effect at the start of the 42nd Parliament. This code of conduct ensures the commitment of Members of the House of Commons in creating an environment free of sexual harassment so that they can excel in their public duties and functions.
