Assembly email accounts
New and returning Members are provided with Assembly email accounts. Caucus staff will notify MLAs when the accounts are set up.
Constituency office set-up
As a new Member, your first steps will be to find and lease office space, to open an office bank account, and to hire staff.
Lease negotiations: the Legislative Assembly has arranged to provide the services of a Leasing Consultant to assist MLAs with lease negotiations.
Constituency office bank account: to receive funding for constituency office operations, each MLA is required to open an account at a local financial institution under the name of the riding.
Staffing: each MLA is responsible for hiring constituency office staff. Salary and benefits are paid from the constituency office allowance, and a formal employment contract is recommended.
Please contact Financial Services for more information on constituency office set-up.
Detailed information on first steps is available in Managing your Constituency Office.
