Richmond Centre Electoral District
What we can help with:
The MP’s office can assist with Federal departments or agencies, the most common ones being:
– Immigration Canada
– Canada Revenue Agency (Income Taxes, GST/HST, etc.)
– Employment Insurance
– Passport Canada
– Canada Pension Plan (CPP) / Old Age Security (OAS)
A common request is to determine the status of an application after the posted wait time has expired. You would have to sign a consent form to allow us to make a detailed inquiry on your behalf, and we will then be able to report back.
For other inquires on Federal programs, at the very minimum we can provide a point of contact to a specific Federal agency that best fits the nature of your inquiry.
What we cannot help you with:
– Municipal or Provincial jurisdiction matters, although we will try to refer you to the appropriate point of contact;
– Offering you legal advice;
– Overturning the decision of any government ministry or body.
Visiting Parliament Hill in Ottawa:
Looking to visit Parliament Hill? You can observe a debate or witness question period in the Members’ Gallery by contacting the Ottawa office.
Certificates of Achievement, Congratulations, or Recognition:
We can provide a certificate of achievement or recognition for your organization’s members and volunteers, relating to Richmond electoral district. We request one week of notice to prepare these. Multiple requests are subject to limitations.

MP Alice Wong’s current policy is to present petitions produced by constituents only from Richmond Centre. According to the House of Commons Procedure and Practice by Robert Marleau and Camille Montpetit, the MP, whose role it is to make the presentation on behalf of the petitioners, is not required to be in agreement with the content of any petition he or she may choose to present, and no such inference is to be drawn.
