There’s going to be a much easier way to apply for a passport, or renew your existing passport if you live in the Huron-Bruce riding.
Member of Parliament Ben Lobb will be hosting a passport clinic Wednesday, October 11th at the Hensall and District Community Centre from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
“In a riding as large as Huron-Bruce, Passport Clinics are really about delivering services right to people’s doorstep,” said Lobb. Since 2009 Lobb’s office has helped close to 20,000 constituents with their passport applications.
Staff will be available at the Community Centre to help residents in renewing or becoming a first-time passport holder. Passport applications will be couriered directly to Passport Canada following the clinic.
Passport application forms can be picked up at Lobb’s constituency office, local post offices, or downloaded from Passport Canada’s website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/passport/
