Visiting the Parliament Building

Discover the National Assembly

Did you know that the National Assembly buildings and grounds were designated a historic site by the Québec government in 1985? The National Assembly is more than just the place where Québec’s 125 elected representatives meet and work: it also offers lots of interesting things to see and do!

Visitors come from all over the world to experience the Parliament Building, an iconic landmark of the province of Québec. In 2019, the Parliament Building completed its most extensive renovation since 1917 with the inauguration of its reception pavilion. The pavilion’s centerpiece is a bright and inviting agora that brings together heritage and modernity.
