Internships Offered by the Fondation Jean-Charles-Bonenfant
Each year, the Fondation offers five 10-month paid internships, worth $21,000, to recent Québec university graduates.
For the five interns, this means a unique experience at the very heart of Québec's political life. To become familiar with the workings of the National Assembly, each intern is paired alternately with a Government Member and an Opposition Member. Interns have the opportunity to participate in an exploratory mission outside Canada and must write an essay on a theme related to parliamentarianism.

The Page Program
Each year, under the page program, a dozen or so undergraduates from a variety of fields:
- participate in a paid internship
- gain valuable work experience
- familiarize themselves with Québec's parliamentary institutions
The program, which runs from August to June and involves 10 to 15 hours of work per week remunerated by the National Assembly, allows interns to earn six academic credits toward their B.A. During the internship, each intern must carry out a research project on an aspect of parliamentarianism.
