Working with Parliamentarians: A Comprehensive Guide at MediaStyle

  • MediaStyle 131 Bank Street Ottawa Canada (map)

MediaStyle’s senior political strategist and founder Ian Capstick will help you and your organization learn the inner workings of Parliament Hill.

We’ll be focusing on how you and your organization can get your messages in front of our elected representatives.

This course provides history and a review of the daily workings of the House of Commons activities and the Senate. By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of the following concepts:

  • Legislative system and how bills become laws, and where your organization can help MPs
  • Working with Members of Parliament, the Official Opposition, the Senate, and Committees: understanding their influence, building relationships, and how to get your messages on their radar
  • Question Period: the format, the rules, and what to make of all the chaos

This workshop is a comprehensive guide to understanding the Canadian political climate and how your organization fits into it.

Registration includes a copy of Making Policy: A Guide to How the Federal Government Works by Glen Milne.

A limited number of spots are available with the fees waived for registered charities and certified B Corporations. Please email to confirm availability.
