PREFACE 

The following is a list of the major legislative and special study reports conducted by Standing, Special and Joint Committees of the Senate of Canada since 1961. Many of these reports have been highly praised for their thoroughness and insight and have been valuable contributions to public policy development in Canada. 

Professor F.A. Kunz of McGill University, in his address to the Training and Development Seminar for Senate Committee Clerks and Legislative Clerks, Ottawa, September 9, 1991, stated: “What I found in my work and in the work of others with respect to the Senate is that, perhaps in part because it is non-elected, the bulk of the work takes place in committees. In that sense it is very different from the U.S. Senate and its highly publicized debates in the chamber, in front of the media ... The role of the committees in the Senate is a reflection of the composition of the Senate and the manner in which it is composed. We all know that the structure includes both standing and special committees. Some committees have been of the highest quality and importance throughout the years, but precisely because of its nature, the work often escapes public notice.” 

The information which follows has been compiled from the Journals of the Senate and a bibliographical compilation from the Library of Parliament. 

A number of the more recent reports are also available on the Parliamentary website at www.parl.gc.ca

Copies of theses reports may also be found in many public, legislative and university libraries. Dependant on quantity of stock remaining, copies may also be obtained from:
