SOLAL: Parliamentary Guide Program

Posted on Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

As a Parliamentary Guide, you can hone your speaking abilities, perfect your second official language and form special friendships with people from coast to coast.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over Canada and around the world are guided through the historic corridors of the Parliament Buildings.

We are proud of the more than 20 years of guiding tradition:

  • Since 1988, bilingual university students from across Canada have come to Ottawa to work at Parliament.
  • The Parliamentary Guides help visitors understand and appreciate the history and functions of our country’s national legislature.

The Parliamentary Guide Program is administered by Public Education Programs, a division of the Library of Parliament.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
