The 7th Canadian Parliament was in session from April 29, 1891 until April 24, 1896. The membership was set by the 1891 federal election on March 5, 1891. It was dissolved prior to the 1896 election.

It was controlled by a Conservative/Liberal-Conservative majority first under Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald and the 3rd Canadian Ministry, and then by Sir John Abbott and the 4th Canadian Ministry, Sir John Thompson and the 5th Canadian Ministry, Sir Mackenzie Bowell and the 6th Canadian Ministry, and finally Sir Charles Tupper and the 7th Canadian Ministry. The Official Opposition was the Liberal Party, led by Wilfrid Laurier.

The Speaker was Peter White. See also List of Canadian electoral districts 1887-1892 for a list of the ridings in this parliament.

It was the second longest parliament in Canadian history.

Having five different people serve as prime minister during one parliament is easily a record for Canada; no other parliament has had more than two.

There were six sessions of the 7th Parliament:
