The Parliament of Great Lakes is the legislature of United Great Lakes. It consists of the House of Deputies and the Senate. The House of Deputies has a total of 300 voting members and 70 senators in the Senate. According to the Constitution of Great Lakes, all the federal legislative power is at the Parliament. The Parliament may regulate trade between states, international trade and the composition of federal courts. It can also regulate taxes, maintain armed forces and declare war. The Parliament meets at the Parliament House in Toronto.

The Parliament is elected every four years. Both houses are elected by using proportional representation. However, the Deputies are elected by using party-list proportional representation, but the Senate is elected by using closed list. The number of deputies is proportional to the population of each state, so that each state is guaranteed at least to have one seat.
