Meeting with Hon. Chris Alexander
CAPIC President, Dory Jade and Chair of Quebec Chapter Louisa Supino met with Minister Chris Alexander, on June 15, in Montreal.
The meeting included two parts, a private meeting with the Minister and other leader in the Immigration field as well as, a breakfast in which the Quebec Chapter Committee Members and other Chapter Members were present.
During this event, the CAPIC President submitted the awareness consultative paper about "Regulation under Statute". Both parties agreed that a lot have been done in the Immigration and the Citizenship Representation in the last 4 years, but more should be done to protect the consumers and strengthen the Citizenship & Immigration Consultation Industry. Another meeting would be scheduled between the CAPIC President and the Minister to discuss CAPIC’s vision regarding "Regulation under Statute" in details.
On June 19th CAPIC delegates in Ontario had another opportunity to meet with Hon. Chris Alexander through an event in Toronto and discussed CAPIC’s position on this matter again with the Minister.
