Apply now for the House of Commons Page Program – Deadline December 4, 2017

Each year, 40 students graduating from high schools and CEGEPs are selected from across Canada to participate in the Page Program. Pages are undergraduate students who are registered as full-time students at one of the four universities in the National Capital Region. They work on a part-time basis during their first year of study.
In the Chamber and around Parliament Hill, Pages live and breathe the history and action of one of Canada’s oldest political institutions. They are responsible for a wide range of tasks directly related to Chamber activities, and have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of Parliament by playing a role in the rich traditions of the Canadian parliamentary system.
