There are various ways of talking about this in a parliamentary system:

We speak of the governing party members, who will generally support the government (in Canada virtually always, in Britain less so), and opposition members. If the governing party has a majority, there is hardly ever the need to have opposition support any government bills.

In cases where the governing party does not have a majority, such as in Britain today, the governing party may form a coalition government with another party, and we would speak of governing party members and coalition members. The opposing members are known as the opposition. Unlike Britain, opposing parties in Canada hardly ever form coalitions (not since WW1, I think). They'll let the party with the largest number of seats try to govern, and all measures become subject to negotiations so that the governing party doesn't get defeated in a confidence vote, and is forced to call another election.

In Dilma's case, her party governs in a coalition, where some ministries are run by members of the coalition. This approach is common in France, Germany, Italy, etc., where the governing party doesn't usually have a legislative majority.

Canada is really the exception in not having coalition governments even though there are usually three major parties competing for votes.
