Do you like politics? Are you fascinated by what goes on in Canada's House of Commons and Senate?
Do you think you're the next Prime Minister?
If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then check out the summer employment opportunities available through the Parliament of Canada.
Of course, most, if not all, of the positions are based in Ottawa, but it's a great city to live in and if you are really keen on politics, there's no better place to be in Canada.
