43rd Parliament, 1st Session (December 5, 2019 - August 18, 2020) Latest Session

The 1st session of the 43rd Parliament was prorogued on August 18, 2020.

Prorogation occurs when the Governor General, on the advice of the Prime Minister, issues a proclamation putting an end to a parliamentary session. In practice, as soon as Parliament is either prorogued or dissolved, all committee activity ceases and, as such, all orders of reference and committee studies lapse.

No committee may sit during a prorogation. The only aspect of a committee's work which survives prorogation is a request for a government response to a committee report.

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