Similar to references to other parliamentary papers, such as a bill or a sessional paper, a reference to a House of Commons standing committee report will include a title of the document and publication date as well as related information (such as the title of the legislature). For example, both the citation and reference to this report will include the following information:

Example reference: House of Commons, Pesticides: Making the Right Choice for the Protection of Health and the Environment. (May 2000) (Chair: Charles Caccia) 

In addition, the pinpoint will include the page number of cited text in a footnote:

Example citation: House of Commons, Pesticides: Making the Right Choice for the Protection of Health and the Environment. (May 2000) (Chair: Charles Caccia) (May 2000) (Chair: Charles Hubbard) at 7.5

For more examples of citations to legal resources, please see How Do I Repeat a Legal Citation to a Single Reference? and for information on citing other parliamentary materials, please see How Do I Cite and Reference Parliamentary Papers? or pages E-77 to E-85 of the McGill Guide.
