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.
