Office of the Speaker - Administration

The Speaker’s Administration Office was established in 1980 when the Speaker’s roles were expanded and clarified within the Rules and Forms of Procedure of the House of Assembly. The Office is responsible for administrative duties, particularly the financial aspects, related to the House of Assembly and its offices.


The Director of Administration implements and maintains all administrative programs, policies and procedures, budgeting and human resources required for the Speaker’s Office.

The Office is also accountable for the payment of all salaries, allowances and expenses for the Members of the Legislative Assembly and Cabinet. The office’s responsibilities are set out by provincial legislation, regulations, and government policy.


The Director of Operations and Administration is Mr. Matthew Timmons.
