Democracies work best when people get involved and we want to make it as easy as possible.

Parliaments don't have to be mysterious things shrouded in legal speak and ceremony. All content here explains how the Assembly works and includes guides on how you can get involved with its processes and links to take action.

Some content is available in many of Canberra's most spoken languages. We are regularly adding more languages and translating different resources. You can recommend a resource or language for translation by emailing us.


Find simple, straightforward information about different ways you can get involved with our democracy.
