Queen's Park to Campus

Association members are keen to see an increase in awareness of the importance of Parliament and the work that takes place there. We are delighted to bring our experiences to your classroom, in elementary and high schools and on college and university campuses, and add a real-life element to your history, social studies, civics and politics classes. That is why we have created the "Queen's Park to Campus" outreach program.

In addition to a wealth of experience from whatever line of work they pursued, before and after their political careers, former MPP's have a thorough understanding of the structure and operation of governments and how policy and laws are developed. They can share their stories about life as a Member of Provincial Parliament and make politics come alive in your classroom.

Subjects can be tailored to specific age groups and subject areas. For example, younger students can learn the basics of voting and the differences between the three levels of government (who does what) while older students can discuss issues of the day, learn how policies are developed and changed and even take part in model parliaments. For college and university classes, we can supply members from two or more political parties to provide a lively discussion of past and current political trends and undertake question and answer sessions with the students.

The topics MPP's would be pleased to cover include:

We'd love to help you bring politics alive in the classroom!
