Watch the Legislature in action

Public galleries

Members of the public are welcome to watch the House proceedings from the public galleries in the Chamber.

View the parliamentary calendar to see when the House is sitting. When the House is sitting, the House meets Monday from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Tuesday to Thursday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Dates and times are subject to change.

To enter the galleries, you need a gallery pass. Passes are available from the officer of the Legislative Protective Service stationed at the south basement entrance. Passes are free. They are given out on a first-come, general admission seating basis. After you receive a pass, you’ll be directed to the gallery entrance on the fourth floor. You will be required to leave your coat and any bags at an attended coat check. You must go through a metal detection unit before you enter the gallery.

The public galleries are equipped with closed captioning. Visitors using a wheelchair will be 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 ONT.PARL channel and schedule, please consult your local cable listings.

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