Opposition Day debates and want of confidence motions

The 42nd Parliament was dissolved on May 3, 2022. New business will be added after the 43rd Parliament begins.

Opposition Day is a reserved block of time on certain sessional days. This time is used to consider a motion that has been proposed by a member of an opposition party.

A want of confidence motion, if carried, signals that the government has lost the confidence of the House.
