Legislative Pages, Legislative Building.
About the Program
Each year approximately 140 young students from across Ontario are selected to participate in the Legislative Page Program. This unique educational experience open to all Ontario students enrolled in grades 7 or 8, provides an opportunity to experience the provincial legislature in action, and to learn about the history and traditions of the Legislative Assembly.
The program is designed for outgoing, high-achieving, community-involved students who have demonstrated responsibility and leadership. Legislative Pages meet key parliamentary and political figures, and learn first-hand about Ontario’s Parliament and the legislative process. They also have the opportunity to forge new lifelong friendships with peers from all over Ontario.
Selected students are excused from their school to serve their term of duty as Legislative Pages. While at Queen’s Park, they are under the direction of the Page Program Coordinator who is a certified Ontario teacher. Pages receive an honorarium of $15.00 per day during their term of duty.
Note: The Page Program is only offered when the provincial legislature is in session, usually from mid-February until early June and from early September until mid-December.
