    How does a bill become Law?

    Parliament passes laws that affect the whole country. Everything from communications regulations to food safety to Canada’s space program. But where do laws come from and how are they created? Ideas for laws can come from anywhere – a community, a political party’s platform, or issues raised by citizens – like you! Once written out, these ideas are called Bills, which is a draft proposal for a law. Bills can start in the Senate or House of Commons, but most begin in the House of Commons. The Bill is introduced in the Chamber and Members of Parliament debate its strengths and weaknesses. Then, they vote to see if the Bill…

We actually offer assistance from within the school which means that I can help non-eu trainees before, during and after the course. I’m always around in the school so can help with any issues or questions that come up. I’m also the careers adviser so can help you with any visa or work-related issues, which are quite often connected. Unless you hold an EU passport, you’ll only be allowed to stay in the Schengen zone on a ninety-day tourist visa. The Schengen zone includes Spain and most other EU countries. If you would like to stay…
