There are two broad categories of Senate Committees’ reports, all with specific purposes:

Administrative: reporting past expenses, requesting powers (to travel, to televise, for example) or to request budgetary approval;


  • Legislative: reporting on bills referred to a Committee;
  • Special Study: reporting on special studies referred to a Committee.

Below is a list of the special study reports of Senate Committees (Standing, Special and Joint) during the current session of Parliament.

For special study reports from previous sessions and previous Parliaments, please refer to the Library of Parliament archives.
