Student Essays

Since 2003, the Canadian Study of Parliament Group has held an essay competition on a parliamentary theme open to university students across Canada. This competition was created to promote research in all political fields relating to Parliament, legislatures or legislators. Papers may focus on any one jurisdiction. At the same time, we welcome comparative analysis or either a federal-provincial or international focus.

Each winning author will receive a $1000 prize.*
