CORNWALL- Guy Lauzon, Member of Parliament (Stormont–Dundas–South Glengarry), announced on March 30th that he and his constituency staff will host two passport clinics this spring to assist constituents with completing their applications without having to go to Ottawa or Montreal.
The clinics will be held in South Glengarry (April 16th, Char-Lan DHS) and Chesterville (April 23rd, NDDHS) on Saturday mornings where applicants can get their photos taken, complete the application, and have it reviewed by staff before they ship it off postage-free to complete the service. Each clinic runs in the school gymnasium from 10:00am to 12 noon.
Photographers and staff will be on hand to assist with photos and the application process.
Before attending, applicants are asked to review the passport clinic flyer being mailed locally through Canada Post, or to visit MP Guy Lauzon’s website or Facebook page for the full details and list of requirements.
For child applications specifically, applicants are asked to call Lauzon’s constituency office toll-free at 1-888-805-2513 as requirements have recently changed and can be explained by staff in advance to save time.
Attendees are encouraged to pick up forms in advance at a local Canada Post office, or online at www.passport.gc.ca, to complete and save time at the Clinic.
Lauzon and staff have hosted 48 passport clinics and assisted with over 60,000 passport applications since 2004.
“Our Passport Clinics are a great way to provide a federal government service right close to home for my constituents. People like being able to come over on a Saturday morning and not have to travel to Ottawa or mail their application in with the risk of errors.”
