Democratic systems and good governance rely on strong and vibrant legislatures that will voice the interests of the people and hold governments to account.
The Parliamentary Centre’s mission is to support legislatures in their lawmaking, oversight and representative roles to better serve the people they represent.
About PARLIAMENTARY CENTRE / CENTRE PARLEMENTAIRE
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.
