Steady stream of people at passport clinics

 For the fourth time, the MP for Montmagny–L’Islet–Kamouraska–Rivière-du-Loup, Bernard Généreux, is happy to report that the passport clinics held across the riding in the last few days were a huge success.  Over 650 people filled out passport applications between Thursday, September 14, and Saturday, September 16.

Local residents visited the Maison de la culture, the second floor of the Françoise-Bédard Library in Rivière-du-Loup, the Robert-Côté community centre in St-Pascal and the Amable-Bélanger building in Montmagny. Volunteers were on hand to help them at every step in the process. “I would like to thank the 20 people who volunteered their time to ensure this event could take place,” said Bernard Généreux.

“I know that residents appreciate these clinics because they can make sure they are filling out their forms properly,” he said. “This is a special service that is made available to local residents, but I also want to mention that both constituency offices can look over passport applications at any time, free of charge.”

The next passport clinics will take place in the spring of 2018, and more information will be available over the next few months. In the meantime, if residents have any questions about passports, they can contact experienced employees working in one of the two constituency offices, at no cost:

– Montmagny (6 St-Jean-Baptiste E, Office 101 / 418-248-1211)

– Rivière-du-Loup (277 Lafontaine / 418-868-1280)
