  • Footwear is required; casual dress is acceptable.
  • Please refrain from displaying political messages.
  • Do not bring parcels, signs, banners or food and beverages into the building. 
  • Demonstrations are welcome on the grounds and are prohibited inside.

Chamber Gallery Protocols

Visitors will be asked to check mobile phones, cameras, recording devices and briefcases with security on the fifth floor prior to entering the public galleries. 

To ensure Alberta’s elected representatives can carry out their important work on behalf of Albertans, please enter and leave the Chamber as quietly as possible. Do not applaud or call out during the proceedings.

Access to the galleries is limited to invitees during special events and ceremonies.

Committee Protocols

The committee rooms, located on the second floor of the Queen Elizabeth II Building, have public galleries.  Members of the public wishing to attend meetings must register with security on the main floor and, in exchange for a piece of identification, will receive a visitor pass for the second floor.
