Welcome to the House of Commons Page Program! 

Each year, 40 students are selected from across Canada to participate in the Page Program. Pages are first-year students registered at one of the eligible post-secondary institutions in the national capital region. They work on a part-time basis for one year. Our recruitment campaign for the 2022-2023 academic year is taking place until November 7, 2021.

In the chamber and around Parliament Hill, pages support parliamentary democracy by providing a range of services to members of Parliament. This incredible work experience broadens their knowledge of the rich traditions of the Canadian parliamentary system.

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.

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. We encourage you to visit our website ( to learn more.
