What does an MPP do?
Every MPP performs three main roles
1. Serving his or her constituency
- represents their views and helping them deal with the vast bureaucracy of government
- meets with constituents and attends local events

2. Working as a lawmaker at Queen’s Park
- holds the government to account through questions in Question Period
- debates legislation in the house and committees
- introduces private member’s bills and resolutions to promote policy ideas and effect change
- presents petitions from constituents on important issues
3. Promoting his or her party and its ideas
- This is the political role of the MPP
- promoting a political party, fundraising and campaigning
- this job has to be kept separate from the those functions paid for by the taxpayer
