What We Do

​Employees of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia provide professional non-partisan services to support the democratic institution of Parliament and its members through procedural advice, administrative support and information services. The Legislative Assembly is an autonomous employer, separate from the administrative framework of B.C. government ministries and agencies.

The Legislative Assembly employs regular and auxiliary employees in a variety of roles, including administrative, management, operational, outreach, professional and research services. Auxiliary employees are employed to accommodate fluctuations in the workload of the Assembly, such as when the Legislature is in session and when parliamentary committees are meeting in Victoria or in communities throughout the province.

The Legislative Assembly offers a competitive salary package and a professionally challenging and rewarding work environment.

​Tour Guides and Parliamentary Players

As part of the Legislative Assembly's education and outreach activities, the Assembly employs Tour Guides and Parliamentary Players to enhance the visitor experience of students, travel groups, cultural associations and the general public. The Tour Guide and Parliamentary Player programs are a four-month opportunity for students to gain work experience. The programs typically begin in late April and end in early September.

Tour Guides conduct informative educational tours in English, French and other languages (e.g., German, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Punjabi and Spanish), incorporating information on the architecture, history and parliamentary processes of the Legislative Assembly, while Parliamentary Players perform in costume as historical characters, such as Mary Ellen Smith (first woman Member of the Legislative Assembly in B.C. and first woman Cabinet minister in the British Empire) and Francis Rattenbury (architect of the B.C. Parliament Buildings and Victoria, B.C.'s Empress hotel).
