Welcome to Tuxis
The TUXIS Youth Parliament of Alberta is the longest running youth parliament in Canada. We have a passion for debate, politics, and most importantly: Bettering our communities.
Registration for the 101st Session is open!
Our Winter Session occurs annually from December 26-31. Members have the opportunity to improve their debate and public speaking skills, grow as leaders, and meet others from across Alberta. The 101st Session will be conducted virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and registration for this year is free.
At its core, TUXIS establishes itself on the values of public speaking, youth-led engagement and community development. Our members' regular involvement in various TUXIS events and opportunities is what has made us so successful for over 100 years. We pride ourselves in the abilities of our members to take on the challenge of parliamentary debate and create a community of youth leadership through TUXIS.
With our flagship event being our five-day winter session held in the legislature, TUXIS also hosts a number of other events during the year. In February is the first retreat for the leaders of TUXIS, with Front Bench Conference to begin the planning for the year. Spring brings around TUXIS' May-Mini event, a smaller version of the December Session where delegates engage in parliamentary debate for a three day period.
TUXIS also holds a summer event, focused away from the parliamentary debate itself, along with a number of fun social events in both the Edmonton and Calgary regions throughout the year.
