Established in 1970 by the Canadian Political Science Association, the Programme funds a minimum of ten interns who have the opportunity to supplement their theoretical knowledge of the workings of Parliament with practical experience of the day-to-day work of Members of Parliament. Interns are selected through a competition process open to all Canadian citizens who hold at least one university degree. During their year in the Programme, interns spend one term working with a government MP, and one term with an opposition MP. They receive a stipend of $22,000.
