The 5th Parliament of the Province of Canada was in session from 1854 to November 1857. Elections were held in the Province of Canada in July 1854. Sessions were held in Quebec City until 1856 and then in Toronto. In 1854-55, measures were introduced to abolish seigneurial tenure in Canada East and the clergy reserves in Canada West. The Canadian-American Reciprocity Treaty was negotiated in 1854. In 1855, a bill was passed to make the Legislative Council an elected body, effective the following year. The Audit Act of 1855 established an auditor of public accounts and the Audit Board, a new government department, which reviewed the public accounts.
