Mr. Ramesh Sangha, Member of Parliament from Brampton Centre organized a Town Hall Consultation in his constituency office on August 23, 2016. The topics of discussion were Immigration, Refugees, and Temporary Foreign Workers. The meeting was attended by a large number of constituents, MP Kamal Khera from Brampton West and former Member of Parliament Hon. Gurbax Malhi. The meeting started with a welcome note from MP Sangha followed by a presentation on the emerging issues pertaining to these topics.
MP Sangha emphasized the government’s commitment to the promises made prior to the election. The MP highlighted the government’s considerations regarding changes in laws, rules, and regulations to address the problems facing the public. MP Sangha explained that his role as a member of the HUMA (Human Resource and Skill Development) Committee allowed him to share the views of many stakeholders and expert witnesses on these subjects. The purpose of the consultation was to solicit views of the constituents so that necessary reforms can be brought out to fix the issues pertaining to these topics. The active participation from the attendees resulted in a free flow of ideas and suggestions to address the issues affecting students, refugees, and temporary workers. There was a need to ensure that all categories like temporary foreign workers and students seamlessly transitioned into the Canadian society. However, there is a need to ensure that these changes should not deprive the local work force of their due employment opportunities.
MP Sangha concluded the meeting with thanks to all participants and assured that relevant suggestions will be taken up to the right quarters so that necessary changes can be made to remove the flaws in the system.
