Applications open for Parliamentary Page program
October 3rd, 2016 - 9:00am
The Speaker of the House of Commons calls the House to order. A Member rises to ask a question, Hansard in hand. The Clerk of the House makes notes on the daily scroll. A House of Commons Page delivers an urgent message to the Prime Minister.
These are the sounds, sights and pace of a day in the House of Commons. In the Chamber and around Parliament Hill, Pages live and breathe the history and action of one of Canada’s oldest political institutions.
Each year, 40 students are selected from high schools and CEGEPs across Canada to come to Ottawa to work as Pages in the House of Commons. Pages have the opportunity to learn about the House of Commons while witnessing the legislative process first hand.
Those hired as Pages work on a part-time basis during their first year of study at one of the universities in the National Capital Region.
We invite you to explore this site and learn about the unique experience and history of the Page Program and explore the opportunity to be at the centre of the action.
Apply now to become a Parliamentary Page! Applications will be accepted until December 5th.
