OLIP is a paid 10 month non-partisan programme providing backbench Members of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario with qualified intern assistants.

OLIP is open to all candidates who, at the start of the internship:

  • Hold Canadian citizenship, or Permanent Residency
  • Completed at least one university degree in the last two years;
  • Are available to work full-time from September 2023 to June 2024.

The Ontario Legislature Internship Programme is a nonpartisan programme. What is nonpartisanship? Nonpartisanship means not being affiliated with a political party, or publicly endorsing positions on matters of public policy. Since OLIP interns will work with both government and opposition MPPs, they are expected to remain politically neutral in a variety of political settings. Prior partisan activity may make your application ineligible.

Please contact recruitment@olipinterns.ca if you have questions at any time during this process. For IT questions, contact it(@)cpsa-acsp.ca.
