The Hales and Hurley Parliamentary Foundation was launched in 2017 by the Parliamentary Internship Alumni Association to support the Parliamentary Internship Programme (PIP) and contribute to its long-term future.

The foundation is named for the late MP, Alfred Hales, who inspired PIP’s founding and for James Ross Hurley, the first Programme Director and a long-time friend of PIP. The Programme, an initiative of the Canadian Political Science Association, celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2019 with a symposium on Parliament Hill and a reunion that attracted more than 200 alumni from across the country.

The Hales and Hurley Parliamentary Foundation will be a mainstay of the Programme in the years ahead. This fund is established within the Ottawa Community Foundation, a registered public foundation (BN: 11922 7981 RR 0001). Your generous donation is tax-deductible.
