Guided tours provide a fun and informative introduction to the role of the Legislative Assembly, the history of the Parliament Buildings, and the provincial level of government. We look forward to your visit!

Tour Information

The maximum number for each tour is 35 students and 5 adults. Larger groups will need to book multiple tours.

Plan to spend approximately one hour for a guided tour, or 1.5 hours if you will also be observing debates.

School groups must arrive at the school entrance (see map below), which is located at the back of the Parliament Buildings. 

Please read the following information sheets for helpful tips and important information for your visit:

Observing Debates

School groups may be allotted 20 minutes in the Public Gallery to observe debates when the Legislative Assembly is meeting (see the Parliamentary Calendar here). 

  • Make sure you book using the 'Tour with Gallery' option if you wish to observe debates as part of your visit.

Events are often held inside the Parliament Buildings on days when the Legislative Assembly is meeting. As a result of these events, some of the rooms that are normally included on the guided tour will be closed. 

Members of the Legislative Assembly

We will notify your school’s MLA of your visit and invite them to meet with your class during the tour. MLAs have busy schedules so we cannot guarantee their availability. Consider inviting the MLA to visit your classroom before or after your visit.

Tour Confirmation

You will receive a confirmation email once your request has been processed. Please review to make sure the details of your visit are correct.
