The Ontario Legislature Returns

After an extended vacation, the Legislative Assembly of Ontario is officially back in session as of October 28, 2019. The return of the Legislature also signals an exciting development for our blog, as we begin posting weekly updates of federal and Ontario legislative activity in our new series: House of Bills. Every Monday, we’ll recap the previous week’s progress of public bills in Parliament and the Ontario Legislature.  

While we’re waiting for the Parliament of Canada to reopen, we’ll begin to gather and post updates made to Ontario public bills as they move through the Legislature. So, without further ado, our first post from the series:
