Summer Student Employment Program

To be considered for our Summer Student Employment Program, you must:

  • have full-time student status (secondary or post-secondary) in a recognized institution; and
  • be registered as a full-time student in your next academic term.

The application process for the 2018 Summer Student Employment Program will open on March 1, 2018.

Here’s what some of our former summer students have to say:

House of Commons Page Program

Each year, 40 students are selected from CEGEPs and high schools across Canada to come to Ottawa and 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.

Parliamentary Internship Programme

The Parliamentary Internship Programme offers one of the most comprehensive postgraduate work-study experiences in Canada. It provides young non-partisan Canadians an unrivalled 10-month opportunity to work closely with Members of Parliament on both sides of the House. Interns meet and discuss public affairs with some of the country’s leading thinkers and policymakers. They are also given the opportunity to undertake comparative research thanks to study tours within Canada and abroad.
