House of Commons Page Program

Each year, 40 students are selected from high schools and CEGEPS across Canada to come and work as Pages in the House of Commons. Pages begin a year-long contract in late-August. They work a minimum of 15 hours a week and their work schedule is coordinated with their university schedule. They are paid $13,049 over the course of their employment. In addition, a sum of $1,200 is paid at the end of the employment period.

 If you are interested in becoming a Page, you must:

  • be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident;
  • be graduating from a high school or a CEGEP (with no academic interruptions) and be commencing full-time university studies at one of the universities in the National Capital Region in September 2013;
  • have an overall academic average of at least 80%; and
  • speak both official languages at a superior level.

 If you are currently in your last year of high school or CEGEP, please visit the House of Commons Page Program Web site at http://www.parl.gc.ca/hocpage to apply online.  Applications for the 2013-2014 House of Commons Page Program must be postmarked or received no later than Thursday, December 20, 2012.
