CPA attends Symposium of Parliamentary Training Institutes and International Professional Development Program for Parliamentary Staff at McGill University, Canada

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) has joined renowned partners such as the World Bank Group, Center for Parliamentary Studies and Training Kenya, McGill University and the African Centre for Parliamentary Affairs in attending the 2016 Symposium of Parliamentary Training Institutes held at McGill University, Canada.

The first of its kind, the symposium brought together parliamentary training institutes, universities, and associations and other organisations involved in the training and professional development of parliamentary staff.

The Symposium comes ahead of the 5th CPA-McGill-World Bank International Professional Development Program for Parliamentary Staff also taking place at McGill University, Canada. Founded by the World Bank and McGill University in collaboration with the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and other international partners, this intensive professional development program includes a one-week residency seminar at McGill University followed by expert-moderated online courses and one-on-one professional mentoring.

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association connects, develops, promotes and supports Parliamentarians and their staff to identify benchmarks of good governance and the implementation of the enduring values of the Commonwealth.
