SHAD https://www.shad.ca/

SHAD is a unique pre-university experience where participants can explore campus life, including living in residence. Students will enjoy the best of university life, from the community of a dorm, to the excitement of experiencing real-life labs and equipment, mentored by top researchers. Each of SHAD's host universities provides an immersion in STEAM disciplines (science, technology, engineering, arts and math, in an integrated, multi-disciplinary format). Each year, SHAD provides the opportunity for 800 students from across Canada and internationally to attend a month-long summer program, in-residence at one of our Canadian host universities, focused on STEAM (science, technology, egineering, arts & math).

For example, Pages collect and distribute official documents, deliver messages to Members, serve as a link between Members and their Hill offices, answer telephone calls, and make photocopies. On occasion, Pages also meet with youth groups to speak about their duties and their experience on parliament Hill. Student Recruitment: October to December
