Senators' Attendance and Activities on Sitting Days

The Senate has been keeping attendance records since 1867, and this information is recorded in the Senate Journals every day the Senate is sitting.

The Senators Attendance Policy, adopted by the Senate on June 9, 1998, provides for the recording of senators’ attendance during parliamentary sessions, and documents each senator’s compliance with the attendance requirements set out in the Constitution Act, 1867 and the Parliament of Canada Act.

“Senators’ Attendance and Activities on Sitting Days” tabulates attendance on those days the Senate is sitting and does not encompass all of the responsibilities and activities of a senator throughout the year. The detailed Senators Attendance Register, prepared in accordance with the Senators Attendance Policy, may be consulted by selecting the individual senator followed by the month.
