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.
