Kevin & Cindy Lamoureux talk immigration in the Philippines

Kevin Lamoureux, MP for Winnipeg North, tried several modes of transport, including kalabaw, during his recent trip to the Philippines to give free immigration seminars.

Kevin Lamoureux, the Member of Parliament for Winnipeg North, and his daughter Cindy Lamoureux, the Manitoba Member of the Legislative Assembly for Burrows Constituency, recently returned from a visit to the Philippines where they hosted several free immigration workshops. This is Kevin Lamoureuxs account of their trip.

Every two or three years I make a point of going to the Philippines. I do so for a number of reasons. My office deals with over 400 immigration files each month. The Philippines and India make up over 90 per cent of those files. So I am sure you can appreciate why it is that I see the benefit of hosting free immigration workshops every time I go. I like to promote and assist wherever I can for people to come to Canada, and in particular Manitoba – especially when it helps people back here in Winnipeg, which is most often the case.
