About House of Commons Procedure and Practice Online
Welcome to the online version of House of Commons Procedure and Practice (2000 Edition), created to provide
users with searchable, easy to navigate access to one of the key procedural authorities used by Members of
the Canadian House of Commons.
As House of Commons procedure is subject to change, users should remember that this edition of House of Commons Procedure
and Practice was published in January 2000. Standing Order changes adopted since then are not reflected in
the text. (The Appendices to the book, however, have been updated and now include information up to the
end of the 38th Parliament in November 2005.)
To confirm current rules and practice, please consult the latest version of the Standing Orders on the
Parliament of Canada Web site.
To the left of the screen, users will find a list of titles that correspond to the chapters of the printed
book. By clicking on a title, users will open the first section of the online chapter. They can then
navigate through the chapter either by using the links on the left hand side of the screen or by using the
“next” and “previous” buttons at the bottom of the page.
To open or print the full chapter, click on “open/print full chapter” located just below the chapter title
at the top of the page.
