The Farm (French: La Ferme) is the official residence of the Speaker of the House of Commons in the Parliament of Canada. It is located in Gatineau Park in the community of Kingsmere, part of Chelsea, Quebec, Canada, near the capital Ottawa.
When Prime Minister King died, he left the residence and grounds to the government and people of Canada so that future Canadian officials could make use of the area. The Farm has been an official residence since 1955, and is now operated by the National Capital Commission.
The Speaker of the Senate of Canada does not have an official residence.
