Visit Outside of Sitting Periods

In the summer months, a student guide is posted at the Chamber to greet visitors, discuss the Assembly's history, function and role, and take questions. The student guide speaks English and French, and is present for the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, from late May to the end of August, 2019. This service may occasionally be unavailable due to events in the Chamber.
At other times of the year, Legislative Assembly staff may be available to meet visitors at the Chamber and provide an overview of the history, function and role of the Assembly. This must be booked in advance through the Office of the Clerk, and is subject to staff availability and other events that may be scheduled in the Chamber.
