Guy Lauzon, Member of Parliament for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry, has announced that his office will be hosting two major passport clinics in Cornwall in the next few weeks to help constituents get their passports.
The clinics will be held on the following dates: • Saturday, April 18 at École secondaire catholique La Citadelle from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (for residents east of Pitt Street) • Saturday, May 2 at General Vanier Intermediate School from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (for residents west of Pitt Street) “We are asking that people attend the Passport Clinic in the suggested area depending if you live east or west of Pitt Street,” said Lauzon. “We want to spread the crowds out and not have one thousand people come to the first clinic. We are having two clinics to make it easier for Cornwall residents and get them through faster.” “Having passport clinics on a Saturday morning is more convenient for people in the area. Many people are often working during the day and can’t make it to our office during the week to drop their applications off. So now they will have the chance to come out on Saturday morning and get it done in one stop,” Lauzon said. “We’ll have photographers to take your photos, and then we’ll review your application, and mail it to Passport Canada on Monday morning. You should have your passport in less than two weeks delivered right to your house through Canada Post.”
Lauzon’s Executive Assistant Eric Duncan added, “We expect to be busy that morning. We have moved to a bigger location at the local high school gyms and will have two photographers and more staff on hand. We expect to process nearly 500 applications in two and a half hours.”
Anyone from Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry is welcome to attend. Also, people are strongly encouraged to visit www.passport.gc.ca and fill out the forms before going to the clinic to save time.
