Where do I find information about Parliament?

Please visit the Parliament of Canada website, which is managed jointly by the parliamentary institutions – the Senate and the House of Commons – and the Library of Parliament.

Here you’ll find information on current parliamentarians and what’s going on in the House, Senate and parliamentary committees. There are also useful links to many related areas of interest.

Am I registered to vote?

Please visit the Elections Canada Voter Registration Site on the Elections Canada website to verify your voter status.

This site contains the National Register of Electors, a database containing basic information – name, gender, date of birth and address — of Canadians who are qualified to vote. It is used to produce voter lists when an election is called.

The site also contains useful information about voter demographics, political parties, electoral law and policy and much more.

Where can I get help with complaints or concerns about telecommunications services?

The Commissioner for Complaints for Telecommunications Services (CCTS) is an independent agency whose role is to resolve consumer and small business complaints relating to most telecom services. This includes wireless, home phone and long distance, and internet access. Customers unable to resolve a complaint may file with the CCTS for a fair, impartial and independent review.

More information about the CCTS and how to file a complaint may be found at
