Watch the Legislature in Action

Public galleries

When the House is in session, members of the public are welcome to watch the proceedings from the public galleries in the Chamber.

The Parliamentary Calendar shows scheduled sitting dates. Dates and times are subject to change. When in session, the House meets Monday from 10:30 am to 6:00 pm, and Tuesday to Thursday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.

To enter the galleries, you'll need to obtain a gallery pass from the officer of the Legislative Security Service stationed at the south basement entrance. Passes are free, and are given out on a first-come, general admission seating basis. Staff will direct you from there to the gallery entrance on the fourth floor. Visitors to the public galleries are required to leave coats and bags at an attended coat check, and to go through a metal detection unit.

The public galleries are equipped with closed captioning. Visitors using a wheelchair are seated in a wheelchair-accessible area in the Speaker's gallery.

TV broadcasts

Sessions of the Legislature are broadcast via cable tv across Ontario. To find the channel and schedule for ONT.PARL, the Ontario Legislative Television Satellite Network, please consult your local cable listings.

All broadcasts have real-time captioning for the deaf or hard of hearing.
