This edition of the Canadian Parliamentary Guide is our most current, with 2,800 biographical sketches. Whether you are a journalist, law student, archivist or simply an individual with an interest in Canadian politics, you’ll save time and find the essential information you need with this concise, yet complete research tool.


Arrangement


Introducing this Canada edition is a 26-page, 4-colour section on the History of Canada. It includes an essay, maps, a timeline, and images of royal and provincial flags.


Following this history, the Parliamentary Guide reflects the structure of the Canadian government. It, therefore, begins with chapters on Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Canada’s sovereign and head of state, the Royal Family and the Governor General, Her Majesty’s representative in Canada.


The next chapters cover the Federal Government and include the Privy Council, the Senate and the House of Commons, which together make up the Parliament. Next are listings of the Press Gallery, Library of Parliament, and a newly enhanced section on the Parliamentary Budget Officer.


The following 13 chapters cover Provincial and Territorial Legislatures. The main body of the book concludes with coverage of the Federal Superior Courts.


Back matter includes five Appendices: Table of Precedence; Table of Titles; Abbreviations; Canadian Representatives Abroad; and Alma Maters. Following the Appendices are a Directory of Registered Political Parties and a Directory of Legislators. An alphabetical Name Index is the final element of the Parliamentary Guide.
