The Parliamentary Internship Programme (PIP) provides a unique opportunity to learn about Canadian Parliament first-hand by working one-on-one with a government and an opposition Member of Parliament. Providing private Members of the House of Commons with highly qualified assistants, this 10-month internship is administered through the Canadian Political Science Association and is not associated with the Government of Canada or any political party.



PIP is open to all candidates who, at the start date of the internship (September 5, 2019):

  • Hold Canadian citizenship or permanent residence status.
  • Hold at least one university or college degree.
