The Throne Speech marks the beginning of the new parliamentary session – it means that everyone elected during the last election can officially get back to work.
The content of the speech reflects the plan for how the government will enact the promises it made during the election campaign. The last throne speech was in October 2020, and was largely focused on getting through and recovering from the pandemic.
The speech is assembled by the governing party (in this case, Justin Trudeau’s Liberals) and then delivered by the Governor General.
