"Question Period" is a Canadian television newsmagazine which airs weekly on CTV at 11 a.m ET and 4 p.m in the west. The program, which takes its name from the parliamentary process of Question Period, is an interview and panel discussion series on Canadian politics.

Debuting in 1967, it is CTV's third oldest series that is still in production behind
W-FIVE and CTV National News. However, the series was suspended from approximately 1997 to 2001 in favour of the similar "Sunday Edition" with Mike Duffy, which CTV inherited following its acquisition by Baton Broadcasting. "Sunday Edition" was itself cancelled in 1999 and "Question Period" was revived in 2001, perhaps due to the launch of a similar (but ultimately short-lived) program on a rival network, "Global Sunday".

The program's current hosts are Jane Taber and Craig Oliver. Mike Duffy, who served as a co-host immediately prior to Taber, was re-assigned to "Mike Duffy Live" and "Countdown with Mike Duffy", both of which air on CTV NewsNet. Robert Fife, Rosemary Thompson and Graham Richardson fill in occasionally as co-host's.

Past hosts include Pamela Wallin and Bruce Phillips.
