Welcome to the Women in the House Program at Ryerson University!

Would you like a first-hand opportunity to meet with a Member of Parliament and find out what it’s like to be a Canadian politician? If yes, then this course is for you!

In addition to providing a theoretical and practical understanding of women in politics, this course will include a virtual shadowing program of a woman MP and her staff, as well as virtual discussions and roundtables with women community leaders and activists, parliamentary journalists, and policy analysts. The program is multi-partisan and will involve engagement with each main political party in Ottawa.

How to apply:
The course is open to all upper-level undergraduate students (enrolled in your 3rd year or higher & with a GPA of 3.0 or higher) registered in a Faculty of Arts program and who identify as women. Students from all backgrounds, including racialized minorities, Indigenous, and 2SLGBTQ+ students are encouraged to apply. 

Application deadline: August 14 by 5:00 p.m. 

No course pre-requisite or pre-registration required; all successful applicants will be manually enrolled at time of acceptance. Space is limited — apply soon!
