As Clerk of Ontario’s Legislature, it gives me great pleasure to welcome the Society of Clerks-at- the-Table in Commonwealth Parliaments to Toronto for the 54th General Meeting.

The Legislative Assembly of Ontario is a perfect venue for this year’s conference, with an agenda that aims to further the society’s objectives of building a mutual interest of duties, rights and privileges among all members.

While you’re here, I hope you will enjoy all of the amenities of our historic Legislative Building at Queen’s Park, celebrating its 125th anniversary this year! In addition, this year’s host city, Toronto, offers exciting visitation opportunities with its many world-class attractions and diverse cultural neighbourhoods to explore.

I would personally like to thank all of the delegates who are taking time to attend this year’s conference – I very much look forward to meeting you as we develop goals aimed at helping us better serve our parliamentarians and our institutions.
