Parliamentary Procedure Workshops for Public Servants

Legislative Learning Sessions (Online)

As an alternative to the full-day, in-person sessions, B.C. Public Servants are invited to register for our online Legislative Learning Sessions. The three sessions provide an introduction to the history of parliament, the parliamentary process, and parliamentary committees.

Session Length

Sessions are offered online over three consecutive weeks.

Each session begins at 11:00 am and lasts approximately one hour.

Sessions are delivered via Zoom.

​How to Register

Please check back soon for information on dates later this Spring and Summer.

Other Information

  • Workshops are open only to employees of the B.C. Public Service.

  • Participants will receive a meeting invitation for each of the three sessions closer to the date of the first session.

  • Participants are automatically registered for all three sessions. If you are unable to attend one of the sessions, simply decline the meeting invitation.

  • Sessions are not recorded, so we cannot share video of past sessions. We will share the Powerpoint slides and other relevant links for each of the sessions.

  • Sessions are typically held on Fridays, as our presenters are required to be in the Legislative Assembly when it is meeting. Sessions are offered on other days of the week in the summer, when the Assembly is not meeting.

Parliamentary Procedure Workshop 

This workshop is intended to provide B.C. Public Servants with a greater understanding of the Parliamentary system of government in British Columbia.

Presentations provide an overview of history of Parliament, parliamentary procedure, the legislative and budgetary process in British Columbia, and Cabinet and Treasury Board decision-making.

Session Length

Sessions are held at the Legislative Assembly and run from approximately 8:45 am to 4:00 pm.

​How to Register

We plan to begin offering sessions in the Spring of 2022. 

Initial sessions will be offered to people who had registered prior to the start of COVID.

As there is already an extensive waitlist for this workshop, we are not accepting new registrations at this time. 

Please visit this page later this year for more information.
