Model Parliament for Youth

Legislative Assembly of Ontario Model Parliament Graphic

Program Date: February 22-24, 2017

The Legislative Assembly of Ontario Model Parliament is an educational program designed for civic-minded high school students in grades 10 to 12, who are interested in current events and provincial issues. This unique educational experience will bring together 107 students, representing each of the province’s ridings, for a three-day Model Parliament Program in Toronto. You will have the opportunity to meet key figures in Ontario’s parliament as well as learn about the history of the provincial legislature and the legislative process through workshops and presentations. Students will also have the opportunity to forge new friendships and meet like-minded students from across Ontario. 
 
Through the Model Parliament Program experience, youth from across Ontario will gain a stronger knowledge of the province's parliamentary practices and traditions while participating in an authentic experience that will teach them the value and importance of our democratic process.
