First Session of the 44th Parliament

The first session of the 44th Parliament is scheduled to open on Monday, November 22, 2021, at 1:00 p.m. ET.


The first item of business on the orders of the day will be the election of the Speaker.

Information about the election of the Speaker and the opening of a Parliament
For more information, please consult the sections entitled “Election of the Speaker of the House” and “Opening of a Parliament or Session” in Our Procedure.

In the House, Members come together to make laws, hold the government to account and decide on the affairs of the country.

The House did not sit on Wednesday, October 13, 2021

In committees, Members undertake studies on departmental spending, legislation and issues related to their mandate, after which they report their conclusions to the House.

Committees

Upon dissolution, all business before committees is terminated and all committees, without exception, cease to exist until the House reconstitutes them following the election.

All orders of reference expire, and the Chairs and Vice-Chairs of all committees cease to hold office. Until committees are reconstituted in the first session of a new Parliament, they have no members.

The effect of dissolution upon committees is essentially the same as that of prorogation, although the government is no longer required to provide comprehensive responses to committee reports. In addition, all Committee orders, if any, for the appearance of witnesses or the production of papers become null and void.

To obtain further information about the effect of dissolution on committees, please consult the “Committee Lifespans” section of Chapter 20 of House of Commons Procedure and Practice, Third Edition, 2017, or the “Dissolution” section of Our Procedure.

Meetings (Wednesday, October 13, 2021)

Members further Canada's interests at international conferences and meetings and promote democracy, economic and social ties with other nations.
