This is an incomplete list of Canadian royal commissions or commissions of inquiry since Confederation. Commissions typically consist of a panel of distinguished experts or judges appointed by the Governor General-in-Council to carry out full investigations into specific national problems. Once their task is complete, the findings of the commission are reported to the Cabinet for appropriate action. The Crown in right of each province can also appoint a royal commission, although they are not included in this list.
