Located in Toronto, Ontario’s capital, the provincial government is responsible for issues that affect the province as a whole such as education, health care, the environment, agriculture, and highways.

Ontario's Parliament consists of the Legislative Assembly comprised of 124 elected representatives – called Members of Provincial Parliament (MPP), elected from across the province, and the Monarch represented by the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.  Each MPP represents a geographical area of the province called a riding. The political party with the most MPPs forms the provincial government. Their leader becomes the Premier and he or she is the head of the provincial government.
