In total, the Canadian Parliamentary Guide contains 2,812 biographical sketches. These include members of the Governor Generalís Household, the Privy Council, members of Canadian legislatures (House of Commons and the Senate, provincial and territorial), members of the Federal Superior Courts and the senior staff for these institutions.
