I am writing to remind Yukon students of an excellent educational opportunity through the Parliamentary Page Programs in the Senate and House of Commons, which are currently recruiting for the 2016-2017 academic year. These programs enable full-time undergraduate students to gain valuable insight and understanding of the legislative process, while earning a reasonable salary on Parliament Hill.

Pages are responsible for a wide variety to tasks in the chambers and at committee meetings when the Senate and House are sitting. In the Senate, Pages also assist with special events and in the management of their program, under the leadership of the Usher of the Black Rod.

Both programs offer a one-year contract with remuneration of approximately $14,000 and cover travel costs to and from the Nation Capital Region. Additionally, the Senate Page Program offers the possibility of renewing a contract for a second and third year for two positions: chief page and deputy page.

Those who are interested must submit their applications no later than Dec. 11 for the Senate and Dec. 7 for the House of Commons. Further information on the program and application process can be found on the Senate Pages Program or the House of Commons Pages Program websites.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 1-800-267-7362.

Daniel Lang

Senator, Yukon
