This year, we are proud that 33 of the 40 pages have made uOttawa their choice for postsecondary studies.
Are you interested in Canadian politics? Would you enjoy working alongside members of Parliament? Want to earn $16,000 (plus a bonus on successful completion of the contract) for this incredible experience?
Pages are the people who collect and distribute official documents, link MPs to their Hill offices, serve House officials and act as a liaison for various MPs. They also make great guest speakers at high schools, sharing their experiences with a variety of groups.
During their first year of university studies, the best and brightest students from across Canada are chosen to work in the House of Commons. They must study at one of the universities in the National Capital Region.
Every year the University of Ottawa welcomes most of the 40 House of Commons pages. Here’s why:
- a high quality education
- an exceptional scholarship and bursary program
- a unique immersion program and the opportunity to study in French as well as in English
- proximity to Parliament Hill
To be a part of this exciting program, you must be bilingual, maintain an average of 80% and be studying in the faculties of Arts, Social Sciences or Health Sciences, or in the Telfer School of Management. Interested?
