Clerk of the House

Clerk's Message

Congratulations on your election to the 41st Parliament and welcome to the Legislative Assembly. This website has been created as a guide for new and returning Members and contains information pertaining to the role of a Member, the services available, and information on Members’ travel guidelines, compensation, administration and financial policies. The website is publicly accessible and updated on a regular basis. A detailed Transition Guide for Members of the Legislative Assembly: 2017 prepared earlier this year to assist Members of the 40th Parliament with the election transition period continues to be available on this website.

We recently launched a new Constituency Office Portal on the Assembly’s Intranet which serves as a centralized location to find additional administrative guides, forms, announcements and resources related to constituency office operations.

Assembly staff are available to assist in making the transition to parliamentary life as smooth as possible. To that end, we have included key contact information on the website.

I hope you find this site informative. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to email Orientation@leg.bc.ca. You may also contact me directly or the Deputy Clerk and Clerk of Committees, Kate Ryan-Lloyd, anytime. We can be reached at craig.james@leg.bc.ca and kate.ryan-lloyd@leg.bc.ca or at 250-387-3785.

We are all looking forward to welcoming you in person during your first days at the Legislature.

Sincerely,
Craig James
