Model Parliament 2018


Model Parliament is an opportunity for students to sit in the House of Commons as a Member of Parliament, debate against their peers, represent their constituents and ask or answer the tough questions – all while learning the ins and outs of parliamentary life.

Registrants will represent a riding they choose and sit in the House of Commons to debate various issues and bills in fictional political parties, or as independents.

Attend the Speech from the Throne, make a Members Statement, participate in Question Period, testify in Parliamentary Committee, and tie it all up on the last night with the “National Roast Dinner” gala!
