Description
There are two lesson packages - one on the BC Election Process and Voting, and the other on Parliamentary Democracy and the Role of MLAs. The BC Election Process and Voting Lesson Package provides newcomers with essential information needed to participate in a provincial election. A voting simulation activity provides participants with an opportunity to experience each step of the act of voting as if they were at a physical voting station. The Parliamentary Democracy and the Role of MLAs Lesson Package gives newcomers a more in-depth understanding of the democratic process in BC, as well as the role of an MLA in representing constituents. The lesson packages teach adult immigrant and refugee English language learners how to participate in the democratic process when they become eligible as Canadian citizens.

Description
In this activity, students are asked to reflect upon their own experience with dividing tasks. The students watch two short videos to learn about how government responsibilities are divided and about the impact these divisions have on elections in Canada. Students then deepen their understanding by completing activities at different learning stations, to explore the three levels of government and the different aspects that occur with elections on each level. Finally, students consolidate their understanding through both class discussion and personal reflection; and, are encouraged to explore how they can actively engage in the electoral process.
