The Legislative Assembly makes laws that affect Ontarians

MPPs present, debate, and vote on proposed laws (bills) in the House. In committees, they study bills, issues, or topics, and report back to the House. Together, the House and committees make up the work of the Legislature. Legislative business is where you can follow what’s happening.



A general election was held on June 7, 2018.
