The Parliamentary Centre is a Canadian, not-for-profit, non-partisan organization, dedicated to strengthening parliaments around the world. Our assessment, strategic planning and training programs help legislatures measure their performance, build capacity, tackle key issues and promote mutual learning.
In short – we help legislatures better serve the people they represent.
We believe that every citizen has the right to participate meaningfully through democracy, and that effective parliaments are crucial to governance and sustainable development. We`re committed to continuous learning and providing support that respects the historical, cultural and political uniqueness of countries, while fostering greater transparency and accountability in government.
