Model Parliament for High School Students

Applications are now closed. 

The High School Model Parliament program at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario is designed for civic-minded Ontario students in grades 10 to 12, who are interested in current events and provincial issues. This unique experience brings together students from across the province for a three-day Model Parliament Program in Toronto. Students will have the opportunity to play the role of a Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) and learn how parliament works through a series of workshops and presentations. They will meet key figures in Ontario’s Parliament as they forge new friendships with like-minded students.

Young Ontarians who participate in this program will gain a stronger understanding of the province's parliamentary practices and traditions, and will benefit from an authentic experience that demonstrates the value and importance of the democratic process.

The upcoming Model Parliament dates are February 28 to March 1, 2024 (onsite in Toronto). The virtual component of the program starts in November 2023.
