In person

We invite you to watch session in person at the Alberta Legislature Building from the public gallery. Groups are encouraged to book with Visitor Services for space availability.

Assisted listening devices (ALD): The Legislative Assembly of Alberta provides assisted listening devices to visitors who wish to watch their MLAs during House and/or committee proceedings. Visitors who are interested in this service are asked to identify themselves to security personnel at the pass desk on the fourth floor outside the public galleries of the Legislative Assembly Chamber and/or when attending a committee meeting on the second floor of the Edmonton Federal Building.

Closed captioning is available on the video stream of House proceedings. For visitors attending in person, iPads are available upon request to allow visitors the opportunity to view the stream and closed captioning when in the public galleries. (Please note that there is a 30-second delay between the live proceedings and the video stream.)

In addition and by prior arrangement through Visitor Services, arrangements can be made for an ALS interpreter to accompany visitors in the public galleries.
