In summer 2016, over 140 interns from across the country travelled to Ottawa to work in the offices of Members of Parliament, Ministers, the Prime Minister, and the Liberal Research Bureau. Building on the success and lessons learned last summer, SLP 2017 is in development with the goal of engaging new young leaders from across Canada, and further developing existing talented leaders.
