A visit to the Saskatchewan Legislative Building is a great way to help students learn about democracy.

There are two school tour options to consider:

  1. The full school visit program takes approximately two hours (details below) and is available when the Assembly is in session. For this program, please refer to the parliamentary calendar to select a date when the Assembly will be sitting, then submit the request form.
     
  2. A class can come in just for a Legislative Building tour, which takes about 30 minutes. This option is popular with school groups visiting outside of a legislative session.
     

School Visit Program

Includes:

•      A 30-min tour of the Legislative Building
