BACKGROUND: 
The Parliamentary Internship Programme was established in 1969 with
all-party support in the House of Commons. It gives ten university
graduates each year the opportunity to work and study on Parliament
Hill. During the ten-month paid internship, they assist Members of
Parliament on both sides of the House of Commons with committee and
constituency work while undertaking academic research, weekly
seminars and comparative study tours to other legislatures. Alumni
have made significant contributions to Canadian public life as
leaders in their communities, in academe, in journalism and in both
private and public sectors.  
PIP strives to build public knowledge of Parliament by sharing the
intern experience on-line and in workshops with younger Canadians,
through public discussion of their research and through the
recognition of significant achievements in Canadian public life at
the annual Alumni Dinner. 
The Programme is independent of government and strictly non-partisan.
It operates under the auspices of the Speaker of the House of Commons
and is managed by the Canadian Political Science Association with
support from private and public sector friends and sponsors, the
engagement of Members of Parliament and the commitment of former
parliamentarians, interns and alumni.
