Senate Page Program

Each year, 15 university students from across Canada are selected to participate in the Senate Page program. Senate pages are responsible for a wide variety of activities associated with the legislative process. Moreover, they are given a direct opportunity to further their knowledge of parliamentary procedure by exposure to the rich tradition of Canada's parliamentary system and the Senate of Canada.

Senate pages are enrolled as full-time undergraduate students in one of the four universities in the National Capital Region. Students are hired on a one-year contract with the possibility of renewal for a second year. Pages also have the opportunity of remaining for a third year, if chosen as Chief Page or Deputy Chief Page.

The pages are responsible for providing a range of services needed to ensure the effective operation of the Senate and its committees in keeping with the tradition of impartiality and non-partisanship in the Senate Administration.

(This program is external to the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island.)
