Publications

The Canadian Association of Former Parliamentarians produces a quarterly magazine, Beyond the Hill, and has collaborated on several articles.  Its members have also written extensively about Parliament, their experiences and other topics. 

Beyond the Hill

Beyond the Hill is a quarterly magazine produced by CAFP for former parliamentarians.  It is also sent to current parliamentarians, CAFP’s sister associations around the world and its parliamentary, government and other contacts.  It is designed to engage, enlighten and inform its readers about each other, their Association and its Educational Foundation.  Its aim is to encourage participation in the Association and to promote democracy.

The current issue of Beyond the Hill is available here, along with past issues.

Articles

Several articles have been written about and by former parliamentarians, including:

As well, in 2009 and 2010, CAFP partnered with a group from Samara to conduct Canada’s first-ever series of exit interviews with 65 former Members of Parliament, including 21 cabinet ministers and one prime minister. These men and women, who together represented all political parties and all regions of the country, generously gave their time, allowing us to record the interviews and use the information to advance public understanding of Canadian politics and political culture.  Four reports have so far been produced:

The Bookshelf

Several former parliamentarians have shared their unique insights of Parliament and life in politics on paper.  At last count, more than 300 books have been published since 2000.  Many have been reviewed in the Association’s magazine, Beyond the Hill.  A partial list of books is available below.  Former parliamentarians wishing to have their books added to the list or reviewed in an upcoming edition of Beyond the Hill should contact the CAFP office.
