Reb Steve shares coffee with Minister Marco Mendicino, Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship and the Eglinton-Lawrence MP. They have a timely discussion on Canada’s Approach to Refugees and Immigration.
Marco Mendicino was recently appointed as the Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship by the Prime Minister. In this new role he will be working with his Parliamentary colleagues to advance smart immigration policies that contribute to economic growth, reunite families and live up to Canada’s responsibilities to the most vulnerable, and lift up communities.
In 2018, Marco was appointed as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, where he represented the Minister in getting innovative, green infrastructure built from coast to coast to coast.
In early 2017, Marco was appointed as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, where he helped to advance important government priorities such as Criminal Justice Reform, Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and Restorative Justice.
