Discover Your Legislature
Your Legislature is an informational resource designed to help all British
Columbians learn more about the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia.
Your Legislature is divided into four sections that cover the
main aspects of the Legislative Assembly. They are Purpose, People, Place, and
History. Each of these sections provides an introduction to its related topics and
then a detailed overview of relevant
subjects and events related to the Legislative Assembly. To illustrate
these different topics, Discover Your Legislature is filled with photographs,
video clips, and details that describe the history, design, and role of
parliamentary democracy in British Columbia.
Legislative Assembly and its parliamentary practices are always evolving to better meet the needs of British Columbians.
Likewise, Discover Your Legislature will continue to evolve. This ensures that educational information on the Legislative Assembly remains accessible and up to date for all.
The Parliament Buildings and surrounding areas are located on the traditional territories of the Lekwungen (pronounced Le-KWUNG-en) people. Now known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, these Coast Salish peoples have a rich culture and history dating back thousands of years.
