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. Pages serve the Speaker, Chair Occupants, Members of Parliament and Table Officers in various capacities.
For example, pages collect and distribute official documents, deliver important messages to Members, link Members to their Hill offices, answer telephones, make photocopies and deliver glasses of water. On occasion, pages also meet youth groups to speak about their experiences on Parliament Hill.
The deadline for applications is December 4. For more information, please visit:
