  • ceremonial visits
  • official visits
  • parliamentary or protocol activities
  • special events on behalf of the Legislative Assembly

Peaceful demonstrations or rallies are welcome and expected. We will make every effort to co-operate and help you plan your event.

If you want to book the grounds, please read our application form (PDF) and accompanying policy carefully. You can direct any questions to the Investigative Liaison Unit  (lpsgr@ola.org). The unit can also be reached by phone at 416-325-2900, or by fax at 416-325-9912.
