Key Features

The annual organization of a model parliament by Laurentian University students, held in January in the Chamber of the House of Commons in Ottawa, has played an important role in the life of the Department of Political Science for the past quarter century.
Participation in the model parliament, researching bills, preparing speeches, rehearsing arguments, provides a focal point for the energy and enthusiasm of many students and is long recalled as among the most memorable moments of an education at Laurentian University.
