We are inviting everyone to attend a "Meet and Greet" with Minister and Consul General Neil Frank R. Ferrer from Philippine Embassy in Ottawa and Philippine Labour representative Mr. Francisco Luna from Toronto. Consul General Ferrer had requested our CommUNITY to arrange a meeting with our kababayans. So, I highly encourage everyone to come and show our CommUNITY hospitality and take the opportunity to speak with them regarding any question you might have with regards to your immigration/work status especially our kababayan under the Temporary Foreign Worker status (including caregivers). I am aware of some of your challenges/situation and the opportunity is here to voice out your concerns personally. I am confident that they will take the input that we will provide to ongoing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) negotiation between Philippine government and New Brunswick. So, here are the details of the meeting:
