Welcome to the online version of House
of Commons Procedure and Practice, Second Edition, 2009, 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 contains information and precedents dating to the
end of the First Session of the Fortieth Parliament in December 2008. Standing
Order changes adopted since then, as well as other changes in practice, are not
reflected in the text.
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 an online chapter
which includes the Table of Contents for the chapter. They can then navigate
through the chapter by using the links in the Table of Contents, the links on
the left hand side of the screen, or the “next” and “previous” buttons at the
top and bottom of the page.

procedures of the House of Commons, please contact the Table Research Branch at
