42nd Parliament, 1st Session (December 3, 2015 - September 11, 2019) Latest Session

The 42nd Parliament was dissolved on September 11, 2019.

Dissolution occurs when the Governor General, on the advice of the Prime Minister, issues a proclamation putting an end to the current Parliament, which triggers a general election.

In practice, as soon as Parliament is dissolved, all committee activity ceases and, as such, all orders of reference and committee studies lapse. No committee may sit during a dissolution.

The information on these pages refers to committees and their work before Parliament was dissolved.
