The session comes as the NDP grapples with leadership tensions that erupted publicly last week.
Party Leader Lorraine Michael said over the weekend that she will ask the provincial NDP executive to include a leadership review vote at the party's convention next year.
That came after members of her caucus emailed her asking for a leadership review, a move that Michael said blindsided her.
The legislative session also comes two weeks before the Opposition Liberals select a new leader.
The Progressive Conservatives hold 35 of 48 seats in the legislature, while the Liberals have seven and the NDP five.
