Message from the Poet Laureate

The Parliamentary Poet Laureate is asking for Members of Parliament to submit the names of poems, their authors and the related bibliographical information for up to three poems that best represent our region or constituency.

The purpose of this request is to allow for the setting up of a national Poetry Registry, constituency by constituency, province and territory by province and territory.

If you have a person and poems in mind, please submit them to us by February 28, 2017 by sending an email to and use “Poem Submission” in the subject line.

Thank you for your participation.
