Kevin Lamoureux, Member of Parliament (MP) for Winnipeg North and his daughter Cindy Lamoureux Member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba (MLA) for the riding of Burrows flew from Winnipeg to the Philippines on December 20th. They will be travelling to the Philippines for one week and will be visiting Manila, Cavite, San Mateo (Rizal), Malolos (Bulacan) and Guimba (Nueva Ecija).
The agenda of their visit includes a series of 90-minute no cost immigration seminars, meetings with politicians and business leaders and visit to the Canadian Embassy.
Kevin and Cindy have been very active in advocating immigrant rights. Kevin will be the first MP that will come to the minds of most people in Winnipeg when it comes to advocating immigrants’ right. He is well loved and supported by local Filipino community. On the other hand, Cindy rightly deserves praise for her efforts as well, like her father, she has been very active in advocating increased immigration and fairer application of the Immigration Act, she is very vocal against the recent government plan to charge a $500 fee to people who have been approved to come to Manitoba under the provincial nominee program.
This father and daughter tandem will hold an immigration workshop, that will focus on explaining the different ways on how people can come to Canada giving emphasis on the Provincial Nominee Program, working, student and visit visa. The workshop will be held on December 29, 2016 (Thursday), 7:00 pm at Mabuhay Manor Hotel located at 2933 F.B. Harrison corner Ortigas Streets, Pasay City, Philippines.
