ELIZABETH THE SECOND, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories QUEEN, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.

Nathalie G. Drouin
Deputy Attorney General

Great Seal of Canada

To our Beloved and Faithful Senators of Canada, and the Members elected to serve in the House of Commons of Canada, and to all to whom these Presents may in any way concern,


A Proclamation

Whereas We have thought fit, by and with the advice of Our Prime Minister of Canada, to prorogue the present Parliament of Canada;

And whereas the adjournment of the Senate and the House of Commons renders impossible the announcement to both Houses;

Now know you that, We do for that end publish this Our Royal Proclamation and do prorogue the said Parliament to Wednesday, the twenty-third day of September, 2020.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, We have caused this Our Proclamation to be published and the Great Seal of Canada to be hereunto affixed.


AT OUR GOVERNMENT HOUSE, in Our City of Ottawa, this eighteenth day of August in the year of Our Lord two thousand and twenty and in the sixty-ninth year of Our Reign.


Simon Kennedy
Deputy Registrar General of Canada
