Each year, the House of Commons recruits 40 bilingual students graduating from high schools and CEGEPs from across Canada to participate in the House of Commons Page Program. Pages work directly on the floor of the House of Commons and are responsible for a wide range of tasks related to Chamber activities. This provides them with the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of Parliament by playing a role in the rich traditions of the Canadian parliamentary system. The recruitment campaign for the 2022-2023 academic year ends on November 7, 2021.

The Page Program has undergone an exciting transformation in the past year. To be considered, candidates must now submit a curriculum vitae (maximum of two pages), a cover letter that includes detailed examples clearly demonstrating how they meet the education, experience, and asset prerequisites listed on the notice of job opportunity, and a proof of enrolment confirming their student status (e.g. unofficial transcript, official transcript or report card from a high school or CEGEP).

To be selected, candidates must be starting full‑time or part-time post-secondary studies in September 2022 at the University of Ottawa, Carleton University, Saint Paul University, Université du Québec en Outaouais, or with our new institutional partners La Cité or Algonquin College. Successful candidates will be required to reside in the National Capital Region during their year of employment as a Page.
