CEIU National Citizenship and Immigration Conference October 25-27, 2013 | Ottawa

March 22, 2013

 

CEIU National Citizenship and Immigration Conference

October 25-27, 2013 | Ottawa

 

The CEIU National Convention approved the holding of a National Conference of Citizenship and Immigration Representatives to be held October 25, 26 and 27, 2013. This will allow a national forum for Citizenship and Immigration members to identify issues that require CEIU to pursue.

The main topics and focus for the Conference will be Mental Health for the members and the Duty to Accommodate.

The conference will be attended by the representatives and alternates of the CEIU National Citizenship and Immigration Advisory Committee. Eleven (11) Citizenship and Immigration members in good standing across Canada are also entitled to attend as delegates. An election may be necessary within the regions. It was agreed that each province + the NCR would be given a delegate seat – for a total of 11 delegate seats. The territories are considered with the Alberta Region, Nunavut is considered with the Manitoba Region, and Yukon is considered with the BC Region.

Locals are hereby asked to submit nominations for delegates to the CEIU National Citizenship and Immigration Conference. Attached is a nomination form which must be completed and returned to the CEIU National Office by no later than June 14, 2013, 4:00 pm Ottawa time. Please note that only members in good standing may nominate delegates.

There will also be space for five (5) observers at this conference. Should you wish to apply as an observer, please fill out the attached nomination form which must also be completed and returned to the CEIU National Office by no later than June 14, 2013, 4:00 p.m. Ottawa time.

Requirements for delegates/observers: One of the requisite for the delegates and observers selected to attend this conference is that each will be willing to provide training/updates once they return to their offices. This information needs to be ongoing and shared with all the members. A report of such outreach from each of the delegates needs to be sent to the National Office.

Combined Locals that have Citizenship & Immigration and HRSDC or IRB members must ensure that Citizenship & Immigration members receive this information.

In solidarity,

Don Rogers
National President
