What is QMP?
After sixty-nine years, Queen’s Model Parliament (QMP) continues to be one of the most successful and highly anticipated conferences amongst the students of Queen’s University. Each year, over three hundred delegates travel to Ottawa to fill the House of Commons and experience the one-of-a-kind opportunity of participating in the Canadian parliamentary process. The passion and dedication of students, combined with inspirational speakers and generous partners, allows QMP to provide its delegates with a truly unique experience that can’t be found anywhere else. By participating in the conference, delegates join the QMP tradition of forming political parties, drafting legislation, engaging in debate and taking a strong, if sometimes satirical, position on pressing and contemporary issues.
Every year QMP strives to achieve new levels of excellence to keep the conference exciting, and 2016 will be no different. QMP gives students a channel to express themselves while exploring the heart of our legislative processes, and following the lead of many prominent Canadian leaders from politics and journalism. Consequently, QMP is continually committed to offering a remarkable experience to our delegates while also seeking to maximize our the involvement of our Guest Speakers’ and Corporate Partners.
Whether you are a delegate, a speaker, QMP alumni, or a sponsor, we hope to see you at QMP 2016 and look forward to sharing this incredible opportunity with you.
