What's the difference between an MLC and an MLA?
Members of the Legislative Assembly An M.L.A. (member of the Legislative Assembly) is a member of the elected Lower House of any of the Canadian provinces. Members of the Legislative Assembly are elected using the single-member plurality system. The Legislative Assembly can propose any bill (including, as the elected House, money bills). The support of a majority of members of the Legislative Assembly is needed by the provincial Government; when a majority of members vote against a key part of the Government's agenda, the expectation is that the Government must either request an election or resign. Legislative Councillors An M.L.C. (member of the Legislative Council) is a term that was rarely used on the Canadian provincial stage, with the term Legislative Councillors being preferred. Legislative Councillors were appointed to the provincial Upper House, the Legislative Council, by the Lieutenant Governor-in-Council. Legislative Councillors had the same powers as members of the Legislative Assembly, except that (a) Legislative Councillors could not propose money bills, and (b) the Government would not need the support of the Legislative Council to govern. While some provinces have had at one time both an Upper House and a Lower House, currently all provinces are unicameral (that is, they are composed solely of the Lieutenant Governor and one House, the Legislative Assembly).
