Student Employment Program

Join the Senate

Are you studying in Ottawa during the academic year? Do you want to work in Ottawa during the summer months? If so, why not consider working at the Senate of Canada?

The Senate hires students throughout the year to work in various areas of the Senate Administration. Some of the areas where students have worked in the past include:

  • Legislative Services
  • Finance and Procurement
  • Human Resources
  • Communications
  • Information Management
  • Internal Audit and Strategic Planning
  • Protective Service

The Senate has the following student employment programs:

  • Senate Page Program
  • COOP
  • Student employment during the summer months (May to August)
  • Student employment during the school year (September to April)

Many students have built their career based on what they have learned from their experience with the Senate. An employment opportunity through these programs could also lead to longer-term employment with the Senate.
