Shop Insurance Canada Becomes Sponsor of OLIP Intern Programme

March 08, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Online auto insurance specialist Shop Insurance Canada is pleased to announce it has become a major insurance sponsor of the Ontario Legislature Internship Programme (OLIP). In doing so, the company joins several industry giants like The Co-operators and the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO) in backing the programme.

OLIP is a 10 month non-partisan course that provides qualified intern assistance to backbench Members of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. As a sponsor, Shop Insurance Canada says it is pleased to help the programme reach its goals.

"The Ontario Legislature Internship Programme is a valuable course that provides vital assistance to backbench Members of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. We are pleased to be sponsoring the future of the programme," the company said.

Established in 1975, OLIP is funded by a financial grant from the Legislative Assembly, but relies on sponsor support also. Formed in 1975, it is not affiliated with any political party and falls under the administration of the Canadian Political Science Association. OLIP describes its programme as an opportunity for interns to supplement their university training:

"The Programme is designed to provide backbench Members of Provincial Parliament with highly qualified assistants. In addition to providing practical experience with the daily workings of the Ontario Legislature, OLIP provides Interns the opportunity to supplement their university training through regular academic discussions and by writing an academic paper on a topic of their choice. Interns also visit other legislatures to ensure a comprehensive knowledge of the legislative process through a comparative lens."

Eight to ten interns are selected from the programme each year, chosen from around Canada. Noted for being highly competitive, the 10 month OLIP course is open to recent university graduates.
