On September 23, 2020, Her Excellency the Right Honourable Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada, delivered the Speech from the Throne to open the second session of the 43rd Parliament.

 

The speech outlines the legislative priorities of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government.

 

The Speech from the Throne opened every new session of Parliament.

 

The Speech introduces the government’s direction and goals, and outlines how it will work to achieve them. The Senate and the House of Commons cannot conduct public business until Canada’s Head of State or their representative reads the Speech.

 

After the Governor General reads the Speech from the Throne, the new session of Parliament is officially opened.
