THE CANADIAN BAR ASSOCIATION Alberta Branch
I am writing to advise that as of June 1st walk-in service at the Citizenship and Immigration Centre in Calgary will be discontinued. This change will take place across Canada. The front reception doors at CIC Calgary will be closed and only clients with pre-arranged interviews will be seen by CIC staff. A Commissionaire will be on duty to meet clients with appointments and provide information on how clients can contact CIC.
Clients will be able to conduct most routine business with CIC either online at www.cic.gc.ca, by mail or through the CIC Call Centre at 1-888-242-2100. Clients with general inquiries are urged to access CIC though one of these two methods. Clients with emergency needs should also contact the Call Centre to make arrangements for an interview.
People wishing to claim refugee status will be able to make their intent known to a Commissionaire who will make arrangements for the person to be seen by a CIC official.
I understand this is a big change and that you may be concerned about an impact on your clients. Please be assured that we will continue to serve you and your clients in accordance to the procedures above and to the best of our ability.
It will no doubt take a few weeks for us to refine our procedures and I will keep you advised of any significant developments. Thanks for your patience.
