Preparing a Petition
Care must be taken to prepare petitions, as the House has rules about their form and content. Before preparing a petition, we encourage you to read the relevant Infosheet, use the sample petition and sample Word® template provided and consult the checklist below to assist you in drafting your petition.
The Petitions Committee also encourages petitioners to submit their draft petition to the Petitions Committee Secretariat to check that the petition conforms with Standing Orders before signatures are collected.
Please note that an electronic petitioning system is not yet available.
