Chamber hosts passport clinic

If you are planning a trip out of the country, perhaps to somewhere warm and sunny or just a dash across the border, you’ll need that little blue booklet that lets all and sundry know you are a Canadian citizen, travelling with the blessings of Her Majesty’s government.
To facilitate that need, the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce is holding a Passport Application Assistance Clinic – or in less formal terms, help in getting the proper documents to pass go.
The clinic is planned for Friday, Jan. 28, in partnership with MP Patrick Brown’s office. To help the clinic flow smoothly, the chamber is looking for 10-15 “reliable volunteers to help with this event.”
Volunteers will review completed application forms and accompanying documentation to ensure that submissions are complete and accurate.
Training is offered on Monday, Jan. 24, prior to the actual clinic. The training session is planned for the chamber’s office at 97 Toronto Street. Volunteers will walk through the application with a representative from Brown’s office; special attention will be given to areas of the application that are often missed or completed incorrectly.
The clinic on Jan. 28 is scheduled for the Kozlov Centre, 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers are asked to show up a little early and stay a little later for organizational purposes. For more information contact the chamber at 721-5000, ext. 231.
