11th Parliament of Ontario

The 11th Legislative Assembly of Ontario was in session from January 25, 1905, until May 2, 1908, just prior to the 1908 general election. The majority party was the Ontario Conservative Party led by Sir James P. Whitney.

The Commissioner of Crown Lands became the Minister of Lands, Forests and Mines. The Commissioner of Public Works became the Minister of Public Works. An Electrical Power Commission was formed to consider the feasibility of delivering electrical power generated at Niagara Falls to industrial centres in the province.
