Senate GRO

About the Government Representative Office

Welcome to the official website of the GRO, the Government Representative Office in the Senate of Canada. Here, you’ll find out how the Senate complements the work of the House of Commons by reviewing and advising on legislation proposed on behalf of Canadians. The GRO shepherds government legislation through the Upper Chamber, ensuring that it is thoroughly and efficiently reviewed. A major focus of the GRO is to support Senate modernization by advocating for a more independent, accountable, responsible and transparent Senate — one that conducts its deliberations in a less partisan manner.
