The National Assembly

Composed of 125 Members who are elected by the people in each of Québec's electoral divisions, the Assemblée nationale is the place where Québec's elected representatives debate questions of public interest and exercise their roles as legislators and overseers.

The Assemblée is the cornerstone of Québec's democracy and a fundamental institution of the State. Its Members sit in the hôtel du Parlement, which is located in Québec's capital, the city of Québec.

The Assemblée is separate from both the Parliament and the Government; it has the power to appoint the heads of certain government bodies (officers of the Assemblée nationale) who must provide independent and impartial leadership.

The Administration

The Assemblée Administration is composed of civil servants who provide support services to the Members and help increase the Assemblée's visibility both at home and abroad.
