​​The Parliamentary Tour Program provides an enjoyable and informative experience for all visitors, focusing on the role of the Legislative Assembly and MLAs, the history of both the province of British Columbia and of the Parliament Buildings. It is our goal to foster an understanding of the legislative process, an awareness of BC's political history and an appreciation for the beauty and significance of the Parliament Buildings.
