There are also Oral Questions each Thursday when Parliament is in session and the Thursday Statement by the Government House Leader is made after these questions on Thursday.
Question period has a reputation for being quite chatotic, but in actuality it is very tightly-regulated. MPs are only allowed to ask one question each, and must ask their questions in a specific order, predetermined by their party's leader. Questions and responses are all timed as well, in order to prevent excessive speeches.
Each of the provincial legislatures also conducts its own form of question period.
