What We Do


The Parliamentary Centre is a Canadian not-for-profit, non-partisan organization that supports parliaments around the world. Our assessment, strategic planning and training programs, combined with research products and networking channels, help legislatures measure their performance, build capacity, tackle key issues and promote mutual learning. In short – we help legislatures better serve their people.

We believe that all citizens have a 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.


With almost five decades of experience in parliamentary strengthening and capacity building, the Parliamentary Centre has developed a wide-ranging expertise in helping legislatures around the world serve their people better.


Each legislature is unique. The services of the Parliamentary Centre are designed to meet the individual needs of our clients and partners, taking into account historical, cultural and political uniqueness.


The Parliamentary Centre has implemented over 80 projects in 45 countries around the world. We welcome you to learn more about the results and success stories from our projects and testimonials from our beneficiaries.
