House of Bills: A Weekly Update on Ontario Bills

Leave a comment

After their winter break, the Legislative Assembly of Ontario is officially back in session as of February 18, 2020.  This also marks the return of the Great Library’s weekly updates of Ontario legislative activity in our House of Bills blog series.

Though the Legislature returned on February 18, our first post of the year includes activity preceding this date. This is because, if designated, committees can meet during any recess or adjournment (Click here for the calendar listing of dates on which committees or the House can meet).
