Parliamentary Press Gallery (Canada)
The Parliamentary Press Gallery is an association established to oversee rules and responsibilities of Canadian journalists when at Parliament Hill. The organization was formed the same year as Canada's Confederation in 1867, by The Honourable Thomas White. During the early years of the association, the members were associated with political parties. Membership of the Gallery is determined by the association, but, the final decision lies with the Speaker of the House of Commons. The headquarters of the organization is the National Press Building at 150 Wellington Street. Before Hansard was introduced in 1875, records were dependent upon the newspapers of the time.
Each province of Canada also has its own press gallery.
