    Since my appointment to the Senate in August 1999, I have been honoured to advance the rights and interests of Newfoundlanders and Labradoreans in the Parliament of Canada.

    On December 3, 2015, I was appointed as the 45th Speaker of the Senate of Canada – and the first from Newfoundland and Labrador. I remain deeply honoured to have received this appointment and will strive to be worthy of the respect and confidence of all Canadians.

    I hope that you will find the information found in this website to be both informative and useful. Should you have any related questions or comments, please follow the “Contact” link above and my staff and I will be pleased to hear from you.


    Honourable George J. Furey, QC
