Post-Secondary Model Parliament
Program Date: March 20 to March 22, 2019
The Legislative Assembly of Ontario’s Post-Secondary Model Parliament is an educational program designed for civic-minded university and college students who are interested in current events and provincial issues. This unique educational experience will bring together 124 students, representing each of the province’s ridings, for a three-day Model Parliament Program in Toronto.
Students will have the opportunity to meet key figures in Ontario’s Parliament, learn about the legislative process, as well as participate in specialized workshops on topics such as the role of the media, parliamentary research, and Hansard reporting. The program culminates in a parliamentary simulation in the Legislative Chamber, where students take on the role of an MPP and debate bills they created. Through this Model Parliament program, young adults from across Ontario 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.
If you are interested in participating in this program, submit an online application. Applications will be accepted each year from October 1st to November 30th.
