Some members of the executive committee of CRSC and a representative from the Office for Refugees for the Archdiocese of Toronto (ORAT) had the opportunity to meet with the Honourable Chris Alexander, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration in December 2014. Several topics were discussed. These included: the Interim Federal Health Program, the change in the age of dependency rules, the increase in processing times when the offices moved to Winnipeg and the increased use of the BVOR program.
The CRSC and the Minister agreed that continued dialogue was vital to furthering our mutual aim of resettling refugees in Canada. Both parties pledged to work together on this important issue.
