Would you like a seat in the senate?
Canadian residents are able to run for a seat in the senate, with the Northwest Territories having the sole opening this year.
Minister of Democratic Institutions, the Honourable Karina Gould, says the strength of Canada’s democracy relies on the diversity in the Governmental system.
“I am pleased that the Government of Canada is improving the Senate application process in order to ensure that we can reach the highest calibre candidates for appointment. I encourage all qualified and interested Canadians to take advantage of this opportunity by applying for a Senate seat themselves or by nominating a potential candidate.”
The deadline for the senate seat application process is set for April 3rd.
