Embrun - Nov. 9, 2011 - MP Pierre Lemieux held a successful passport clinic in Embrun this week. His team processed 85 passport applications.

“Even though the clinic was scheduled to open at 9:00 am, people arrived early to take advantage of this great opportunity. People were delighted with the service they received and it was time well spent,” said Mr. Lemieux.

Mr. Lemieux explained that in his dealings with Passport Canada, he has learned that a very high percentage of passport applications received by Passport Canada contain errors, which can result in rejected passport applications and/or significant delay.

At his passport clinics, Mr. Lemieux and his staff carefully review each and every passport application to identify mistakes and correct errors.

He then couriers the completed passport applications to Passport Canada and, because they are received from a Member of Parliament, Passport Canada makes a special effort to process them quickly.

Since becoming MP in 2006, Mr. Lemieux has hosted 15 passport clinics throughout the riding and processed thousands of passport applications on behalf of residents.

Mr. Lemieux concluded by stating, “I organized my Passport Clinics to deliver real, practical services directly to the people of my riding. I was very pleased that people came out in large numbers once again to use this service. If people were not able to attend, I invite them to contact one of my riding offices at 1-800-990-0490 and I and my staff would be happy to help them with their passport applications, in exactly the same way as we did at my Passport Clinic.”
