Process is really what most people consider to be the "meat" of politics. It's made up of many things, such as the day-to-day proceedings in the Legislative Assembly like Question Period, and less frequent events, like elections. 

Political Institutions are where political process gets done. An example of a political institution in Alberta is the Legislative Assembly. 

In this section we show you how things work inside the Legislative Assembly and how policy is made that affects all individuals in Alberta.  We also bring to light the process of elections in Alberta and highlight some of our province's political buildings and institutions.
