In case you haven’t heard, Parliament Hill is getting a massive skating rink to close out the Canada 150 celebration year.

Canadian Heritage teamed up with the Ottawa International Hockey Festival to construct a NHL-sized skating rink, providing the ultimate Canadian experience.

From December 7 to 31, Canadians can lace up their skates and use the rink for free, while taking in Parliament views. The rink will also serve as the focal point for Canada 150 Skating Day on December 10, which will also include events in 200 community arenas from coast to coast to coast.

And to go along with the ultimate Canadian experience, the rink is looking to hire for the ultimate Canadian job: Zamboni drivers.

If you’re an experienced Zamboni drivers, Parliament Hill has a seasonal gig with your name written all over it.

The job application, posted on, is open until December 2, in case you’re interested.
