This year, consuls from Chinese Consulate Toronto Office came to Winnipeg Chinese Cultural and Community Centre(WCCCC) on Oct 07-08, 2017, to provide Chinese / HongKong Passport renewal service for Chinese Immigrants and students in Manitoba.
According to the Chinese regulations, the renewal of the passport must be applied in person at the Chinese Consulate office. Since there is no Chinese Consulate office in Manitoba, Chinese immigrants and students in Manitoba have to travel to Toronto to renew the passport.
In view of the increasing number of Chinese citizens living in Manitoba, the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Toronto sent officials to Winnipeg to accept applications twice a year to serve the Manitoban Chinese.
The WCCCC provided its office space, facilities, staffs and volunteers to help out this community service event. The consuls processed more than 500 applications within one and half days. The Consuls appreciated the help from the Centre and commented that the mission was a great success.
Since the number of applications is far more than previous years, consuls gave up their weekend for applicants’ convenience. Also, in order to better assist the consuls, volunteers used one month to prepare and affirm the site layout, activity process, personnel assignment and the detail of application materials with WCCCC office manager Amy’s lead.
