MPPs on winter break as Ontario legislature adjourns for the year's Profile



The Ontario legislature has adjourned for the year.

A release from the province says it was a “successful and productive year.”

In 2021, 42 bills were passed, including 20 government bills and 22 private members’ bills.

The government says they’re continuing to take steps towards delivering on their commitment to protect Ontario’s progress in the fight against the pandemic and build the foundation for economic growth and prosperity.

“I am extremely proud of the progress our government has made in 2021,” said Paul Calandra, Ontario’s Government House Leader. “We have brought in legislation to keep Ontarians safe and continue our fight against COVID-19, protect and support workers and make it easier to get shovels in the ground to build critical infrastructure projects.”

The following bills were passed during the fall session:

  • Bill 5, York Region Wastewater Act, 2021

  • Bill 27, Working for Workers Act, 2021
  • Bill 34, Anti-Asian Racism Education Month Act, 2021 – sponsored by Vincent Ke, MPP for Don Valley North
  • Bill 37, Providing More Care, Protecting Seniors and Building More Beds Act, 2021
  • Bill 38, Remembrance Week Amendment Act, 2021
  • Bill 43, Building Ontario Act (Budget Measures), 2021
  • Bill 58, Endometriosis Awareness Month Act, 2021 – sponsored by Marit Stiles, MPP for Davenport
  • Bill 75, Emancipation Month Act, 2021 – co-sponsored by Mike Schreiner, MPP for Guelph, Mitzie Hunter, MPP for Scarborough-Guildwood, Andrea Khanjin, MPP for Barrie-Innisfil, and Laura Mae Lindo, MPP for Kitchener Centre

“While there is still much work to be done, I am very pleased with the progress that we have made this year,” added Minister Calandra. “We will continue to deliver on our commitment to protecting our progress, building Ontario and working for workers to build a brighter and more prosperous future for all Ontarians.”
