Question Period is a Canadian television newsmagazine which airs weekly on CTV at 11:00 AM ET and 4:00 PM in the west. It also airs on the CTV News Channel at 5:00 PM EST. 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 1996 to 2001 in favour of the similar Sunday Edition with Mike Duffy, a BBS production which aired on most CTV stations and which was ultimately taken over by the network. Sunday Edition was itself cancelled in 1999 and Question Period was revived in 2001, potentially to head off the launch of a similar (but ultimately short-lived) public affairs program on a rival network, Global Sunday.

The program's current hosts are Jane Taber and Craig Oliver. Robert Fife, Rosemary Thompson and Graham Richardson fill in occasionally as co-hosts.

Hosts or co-hosts during the original run included Pamela Wallin and Bruce Phillips. Past co-hosts of the show in its current iteration include Edward Greenspon and Mike Duffy.
