Orders of the Day
Orders of the Day, also known as the order paper, is the
official agenda of the Legislative Assembly. It provides a comprehensive overview of the status of business that is before the Assembly. Under Standing Order 93, the Orders of the Day are published by the Office of the Clerk each day that the Assembly sits.
Its listings include the
status of legislation, adjourned debates, motions, resolutions, and proposed amendments to bills, as well as other business like
adjourned debates on motions and
written questions on notice. Once the debate for any of these items concludes, it will no longer appear on the Orders of the Day.
House Leader has the prerogative, usually in consultation with opposition House Leaders, to decide on the business of the day.
Each published Orders of the Day can be found on the
Legislative Assembly website.
