CIC continues to explore with partners measures to provide service to clients in remote areas, including directed interviews, video conferencing and itinerant services.
“Canada is fortunate and proud to be home to one of the largest Jamaican diaspora communities. Jamaican-Canadians form an integral part of the cultural diversity of our country, and their pride and connection to their homeland help maintain the strong friendship between our two Commonwealth countries.

“As Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, I wish all members of the Jamaican-Canadian community and all Jamaicans around the world a very happy Jamaican Diaspora Day.”
