Iranian-Canadian community is playing a strong role in Canadian economy - either by contributing to projects as professionals or as an expert in various fields (Engineering, Medical, etc), transferring the currencies, boosting the house market, along with making a very good contribution on various areas, with the considerable population here in Canada.

Closing the visa section of Canadian embassy in Tehran -- a decision by the Citizenship and Immigration Canada department -- and transferring the service to Turkey, will make a big problem for the Iranian relatives to pay a visit to their beloved ones here in Canada.

We sign this petition to oppose the closure of the visa section in Tehran, in a hope that the federal government change/revise its decision.

      It is told by transfering visa section to Turkey immigration and vissa issue process will be faster. However, it is different in practice. People have planned to either immigrate and raise their family in here or bring their parents to have peace of mind. Planned are ruinned by canceling the applications of 2008 and earlier and instead of having parents to take care of, we have either participated their funerals or waiting for any un expected call from the home to get the bad news. rhese are the facts and regardless of the location , Processes must be revised.

      It's almost impossible for my parents to travel to Turkey to get their visa. Even if you say there is no need to go, still it will add a considerable amount of cost to what they already need to pay, and definitely it will take even more time to issue the visa. It's hugely inconvenient. Please revise and re-open the visa section in Tehran embassy. Thank you.
