Senate Administrative Rules

Avant-propos au
Rglement administratif du Snat

The Senate Administrative Rules govern


Senate administrative practice.
They
complement and are of equal authority to the
Rules of the Senate, which govern Senate

the administrative rules codify comprehensively
the fundamental principles and rules governing
the internal administration of the Senate and its
allocation and use of resources.

Rglement administratif contribue la saine

The Senate Administrative Rules are subject


to statute law that applies to the Senate. Of
particular note are the Constitution Acts, 1867
and 1982, the Parliament of Canada Act, the
Members of Parliament Retiring Allowances Act
and the Parliamentary Employment and Staff
Relations Act.

droit lgislatif qui sapplique au Snat, en
particulier les Lois constitutionnelles de 1867
et 1982, la Loi sur le Parlement du Canada, la
Loi sur les allocations de retraite des
parlementaires et la Loi sur les relations de
travail au Parlement.

The Senate Administrative Rules are


supplemented by policies, guidelines, opinions,
directives, forms and practices adopted or
implemented by the Senate, the Standing
Committee on Internal Economy, Budgets and
Administration and the Clerk of the Senate.

directrices, les avis, les directives, les
formulaires et les pratiques adoptes ou mises

responsible for the administration of the Senate
Administrative Rules and for giving guidance on
their interpretation to Senators and the Senate
Administration.
