From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) is an elected member of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario, Canada.

The titular designation "Member of Provincial Parliament" and the initialism "MPP" were formally adopted by the Legislature on April 7, 1938. Prior to the adoption of this resolution, members were officially known as "Members of the Legislative Assembly" (MLAs) though, in practice, they had often informally been referred to as Members of Provincial Parliament for several decades.

The text of the Resolution passed by the House on that day is as follows:

On motion of Mr. Hunter, seconded by Mr. Miller,
Resolved, That in all matters of address, titular distinction, formal correspondence, official proceedings and all similar matters having to do with and coming under the jurisdiction of the Legislature of Ontario, the members of the Legislative Assembly shall be entitled to the designation "Member of Provincial Parliament" and its abbreviation "M.P.P."

Ontario is the only Canadian provincial legislative assembly to employ this designation. Members of other Canadian provincial and territorial assemblies employ the titles:

"MPP" was the titular designation of the members of the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada from 1791 to 1838.
