The initial seat distribution of the 38th Canadian Parliament
Paul Martin was Prime Minister during the 38th Canadian Parliament. He is shown here addressing Canadians on the 38th Parliament's sponsorship scandal.

The 38th Canadian Parliament was in session from October 4 2004 until November 29 2005. The membership was set by the 2004 federal election on June 28 2004, and it changed only somewhat due to resignations and by-elections, but due to the seat distribution, those few changes significantly affected the distribution of power. It was dissolved prior to the 2006 election.

It was controlled by a Liberal Party minority under Prime Minister Paul Martin. The Official Opposition was the Conservative Party, led by Stephen Harper.

The Speaker was Peter Milliken. See also List of Canadian federal electoral districts for a list of the ridings in this parliament.

The parliament was dissolved on 29 November 2005 by the Governor General, following a vote of non-confidence passed on 28 November by the opposition Conservatives, supported by the New Democratic Party and Bloc Québécois. Consequently, a federal election was held on 23 January 2006 to choose the next parliament.

There was only 1 session of the 38th Parliament:
