Last week we posted a series of links for youth who might want to get involved in Forums or Youth Parliaments. Those programs are great opportunities to learn more about how government functions. There is also another type of program that is available to students across the country; Legislative Page and Internship Programs.
Open to high school students, university students, or recent graduates, programs vary in their content from province to province (to territory). They traditionally involve serving the Legislature and elected representatives during a period where the members are in session. I had the opportunity to serve as a Page at Queen’s Park in Ontario in 1999 and it was instrumental in developing my interest in civics.
Please click the link of the program you’re interested in to get the full details of what it entails, what the eligibility is and how to apply.
