While the Conservative government has used its newfound majority to push through time allocation motions, which limit the number of hours set aside for debate, more than any previous government, only three bills are expected to pass both the House of Commons and the Senate before the end of the fall sitting of the 41st Parliament.

The following bills made it through the House between Sept. 19 and Dec. 15. Most were introduced in a previous Parliament but didn't make it through the entire legislative process.
  • C-10 — The omnibus crime bill, combining all the justice measures the Conservatives tried to pass when they had a minority government, is at second reading debate in the Senate and expected to pass in 2012.
  • C-13 — A bill to implement the spring budget had third reading in the Senate on Dec. 13 and is awaiting royal assent to become law. Among other things, the budget increased support payments to the poorest seniors, extended children's tax credits to arts programs, phased out the per-vote subsidy to political parties and made the $2-billion Gas Tax fund for cities permanent.
  • C-16 — The security of tenure of military judges act, making changes to how long military judges can serve, received royal assent on Nov. 29.
  • C-18 — An act to reorganize the Canadian Wheat Board, which will eliminate the wheat board’s monopoly on selling Prairie wheat and barley, was passed by the Senate and received royal assent Thursday.
  • C-20 — The fair representation act, which will add 30 seats to the provinces with the biggest populations, went to third reading stage in the Senate on Dec. 15 and is expected to become law before the Senate rises.
  • C-22 — The Eeyou Marine Region Land Claims Agreement Act, a settlement involving Inuit and Cree peoples in northern Quebec, had royal assent on Nov. 29.
  • C-29 — One of a series of budget bills needed during the year passed third reading in the Senate on Dec. 12 and is awaiting royal assent.
