This sector parliament is aimed at older people, ranging from the age of 55. It is normally held during the month of September. The sitting coincides with the International Day for Older Persons, with the Legislature and Office of the Premier sharing infrastructure and costs. Participation of the 80 delegates is divided into two streams: 40 representatives come from the different political parties in the Legislature and another 40 participants come from provincial district forums.

Any decisions regarding the theme, venue and other logistics are discussed in plenary meetings and, like other sector parliaments mentioned above, the Senior Citizens’ Parliament is also a two-day event with a similar program format as other sector parliaments.
