Our Vision and Values

We are guided by a core vision and values-striving always for excellence to provide effective non-partisan support to Members and to act as responsible stewards of the institution.


The vision of the House Administration is to exercise leadership in supporting the House of Commons and its Members, and in the advancement of parliamentary institutions.


The employees of the House Administration are proud to serve the Parliament of Canada. We are guided by values that motivate us to provide excellent service and non-partisan expert advice to Members. These values are the following:

Respect for the democratic process - We believe in the importance of parliamentary institutions and the democratic process, and we work to strengthen and foster respect for them.

Balancing continuity and change - We preserve the collective memory and ensure institutional continuity, while supporting Members as their roles evolve and the institution evolves with them.

Professional excellence - We work together to provide effective, accountable and non-partisan support, and we act with integrity in a manner that is responsible and ethical.
