In our last House of Bills update before the summer adjournment, the Legislature was scheduled to return on September 13. However, on September 3 Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives announced that they would be proroguing the legislature until after the federal election. With the September 8 proclamation, the 1st Session of the 42nd Parliament of the province of Ontario has officially been prorogued. The legislature is currently set to return on October 4.
A reminder to the profession that significant changes to Ontario’s contingency fee regime take effect tomorrow, July 1, 2021.
Below, we have gathered a recap of bill activity for the sitting week of May 31-June 3, and have also included the activity of those committee meetings that occurred during the week the Legislature was on break (May 24-27).
