Information about the
Assembly's proceedings

  1. Where can I watch broadcasts of the proceedings?

    For live broadcasts:
    Under the Legislative Business tab, choose “Watch Legislative Proceedings.” Choose from meetings of Legislative Assembly or the Assembly’s committee meetings.

    For past broadcasts:
    You need to know the date of the broadcast first. If you do not know the date, consult the Legislative Meeting Archive to determine the date.
    Once you know the date of the broadcast, go to the Legislative Calendar. Enter the month and year you're looking for. You can even narrow your search by meeting type (Assembly or committee), and select "Video Archive" as the type of record. For example:


 

  1. How do I find what my MLA said in the Assembly or in a committee?
    There are a couple of ways to search:
     - Consult the Speaker Indexes. These publications list when MLAs have spoken about issues and parliamentary business. Click on the name of your MLA and review the topics. These topics are linked to the verbatim publications of these events, so you can read that day’s record about what happened in the proceedings.
     - Contact the Legislative Library for assistance.
     
  2. I want to see what was said about a specific topic. How do I find that?

    There are a few ways to search:
     - Consult the Subject Indexes for your topic. These indexes identify the topics and procedural business which have occurred in the current and past legislative sessions. Very recent debate (i.e., within the last week of sitting) may not be indexed yet.
     - Contact the Legislative Library for assistance.
     - Use the website’s search engine (in the top right corner of every page) to search for your subject:

  3. Where can I find documents for a specific committee?

    You can find committee reports, notices, debates, minutes, tabled documents, and videos by going to the Legislative Meeting Archive. Committee notices, debates, minutes, and videos can also be accessed through the Legislative Calendar, if you know the meeting’s date. If you don’t know the meeting’s date, you can use the Legislative Meeting Archive to generate a list of past committee meetings.
     

  4. Where do I find the throne speech? Where do I find the budget speech?

    The Speech from the Throne is typically presented on the afternoon of the first day of a legislative session. Go to the Legislative Calendar and choose the afternoon verbatim publication. (On opening day, the Assembly’s morning meeting typically prorogues (i.e., concludes) the previous session. The afternoon meeting starts the new session with the Speech from the Throne.)

     
    A budget speech is typically delivered in the Assembly in the afternoon and is published in the Legislative Assembly’s verbatim publication. Go to the Legislative Calendar and choose the verbatim publication for the appropriate calendar date.
     
     

  5. How do I find yesterday’s Question Period? In print and in video?
    Go to the Legislative Calendar for the day you want.
    For print: Select the link to "Legislative Assembly – Debates." In each Debates publication, you can search for the text "Question Period" to find the header that appears at the beginning of that section of the Debates. You can also turn to the publication's last few pages where the table of contents will show what page Question Period begins on.
    For video: Select the link to "Legislative Assembly — Video Archive." Question period is part of routine proceedings and it typically begins about 30 minutes after the start of a sitting day. Using the guide at the lower left of your video window, you can advance the video 25 to 30 minutes and adjust until you find the start of question period.
