43rd Parliament, 2nd Session (September 23, 2020 - August 15, 2021) Latest Session

The 43rd Parliament was dissolved on August 15, 2021.

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.
