Philippine Consular outreach in Manitoba
Sessions set for June 15–19, 2013
WINNIPEG – A date has been set for the next series of sessions to provide Philippine consular services in Manitoba. The session will run for five days in Winnipeg from June 15 to 19, 2013.
Orlando Marcelino, the Manitoba organizer for Philippine Consular Outreach, announced the dates this morning (May 17) after receiving confirmation from the Philippine Consulate General (PCG) in Toronto. Marcelino is now in the process of securing a venue for the event and recruiting volunteers to organize and assist the consulate team in running the sessions. The official team will consist of five consulate staff members from Toronto and three from Ottawa.
Over the past few months, Marcelino has been compiling a mailing list of well over 2,300 applicants for this event. As reported last month in the Pilipino Express, the outreach ream will be able to accommodate only 1,950 applicants who are already on the schedule, however, those who need other non-passport-related services, such as a Special Power of Attorney or NBI Clearance, may attend the sessions without an appointment.
The PCG will post the official applicants’ list on its web site shortly. Visit them at www.philcongen-toronto.com
