Our sponsors are an integral part of the Programme and without their help, the Programme could not function. We would like to thank our sponsors for all the help they have given us in the past and for helping to make the Programme as successful as it is today. OLIP has always been supported by a substantial annual grant from the Ontario Legislative Assembly through the all-party Board of Internal Economy. However, corporate donations have been an important element in OLIP financing and these donations have been used to fund exchange visits and related educational activities. The Programme enjoys a close working relationship with Churchill Society For the Advancement of Parliamentary Democracy, G.P. Murray Research Ltd and The British Consulate in Toronto.
Becoming a Sponsor
The Ontario Legislature Internship Programme welcomes donations from private individuals as well as corporate sponsors. We regularly receive donations from private individuals, including a number of former interns. All donations are tax deductible and an official income tax receipt will be issued by the Canadian Political Science Association.
OLIP relies on sponsorship in order to succeed and we are always looking for new sponsors. For details on how to sponsor the Programme, please call the OLIP office at 416-325-0040.
Sponsors will benefit from attending the bi-annual receptions held at Queen’s Park, which in the past have been attended by the Premier, Cabinet Ministers and other dignitaries. Sponsors will also have the opportunity to meet with the interns on a more informal basis to talk about the role of their company and have a link to their firm on the OLIP website. All sponsors are issued a tax receipt by the CPSA and sponsors will also benefit from knowing that their donation has contributed to the development of the next generation of leaders, policy makers, academics, analysts, and citizens.
We would like to thank our sponsors once again for their generosity and time, which has helped to make OLIP so successful, without you the Programme would not exist!
