Model Parliament for High School Students
Program Date: February 26th to 28th, 2020
This educational program at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario is designed for civic-minded high school students in grades 10 to 12, who are interested in current events and provincial issues. This unique experience will bring together 124 students from across Ontario, for a three-day Model Parliament Program in Toronto, where they will have the opportunity to play the role of a Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP). Students will learn about the parliamentary and legislative process through workshops and presentations. They will also meet key figures in Ontario’s Parliament as they forge new friendships with like-minded students.
Through the Model Parliament Program experience, young Ontarians will gain a stronger knowledge of the province's parliamentary practices and traditions while participating in an authentic experience that will teach them the value and importance of our democratic process.
