LEGISinfo is an essential research tool for finding information on legislation currently before Parliament. This tool provides electronic access to a wide range of information about individual bills, such as: * the text of the bill at various stages; * government press releases and backgrounders (for government bills); * legislative summaries from the Parliamentary Information and Research Service; * important speeches at second reading; * votes; and * coming into force data. In addition, LEGISinfo provides: a reading list; and other related Web links for House of Commons and Senate government bills. By bringing these sources together into one place, LEGISinfo offers easy access to legislative information and reduces time spent researching these matters. LEGISinfo is a collaborative effort of the Senate, the House of Commons and the Library of Parliament.
A user-friendly volunteer-run website that attempts to make the records of Parliament more open and accessible. Get the full text of bills, debates, committee proceedings, etc. Because this is a non-governmental website, it is not authoritative as a citation. Best practice would be to use it as a search aid, then fact-check and cite the LEGISinfo or other governmental site entry.
