On behalf of the ICC board, I am writing to update you on our progress, and to ask for your continued support and involvement.
 
Our most visible event this fall was the "Meet the Candidates" event that we organized on October 12th, just two days before the Federal election! This event featured three MPs and their opponents from all political parties from three key ridings of Willowdale, Thornhill, and Richmond Hill. The event, held at the Council Chambers of the North York Civic Centre, attracted 200 community members, who posed insightful and important questions to the candidates.
 
One of the highlights of the event was a heated debate between the candidates about immigration and visa issues, related to the Iranian-Canadian community. It became clear at the meeting that our community's voice has begun to be heard in Ottawa, but much work remains to be done for the Iranian-Canadian community to achieve its rightful place in the Canadian mosaic.
 
Another highlight was the knowledge and interest that the candidates displayed about Iranian culture and heritage and the significance of the Iranian community in their ridings.
Building on a successful event, we at ICC will continue to press our officials to heed the needs of the Iranian community, so we can work together for our greater integration into Canada's civic and economic life.
 
It is our current priority to communicate to Citizenship and Immigration Canada about the need to modify counterproductive visitor visa policies, and for improving the quality of service that the friends, relatives, and colleagues of Iranian-Canadians receive at the Canadian embassy in Tehran.
 
We are currently working on a number of initiatives aimed at bringing Canadian decision makers from the Federal and Provincial Governments to better grasp the potentials and challenges of our community.
 
We need your support to carry on these important tasks, and to expand our membership, and will soon communicate with you about our crucial upcoming programs. 
 
In the meantime I'd urge you to please get involve in your own organization. Get in touch with committees who are in urgent need of your input, ideas and involvements.
 
 
Regards,
 
Saeed Hariri
President

Iranian-Canadian Congress writes to Canada's Immigration Minister to protest treatment of Iranians


The Honourable Diane Finley, P.C., M.P.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada
Ottawa, ON, K1A 1L1

September 13, 2008

Dear Minister Finley,

On behalf of the board of directors of the Iranian Canadian Congress, I am writing to raise a number of issues of critical concern to the Iranian-Canadian community. The establishment of ICC was two years in the making and benefited from the tireless efforts of some of the most distinguished members of the Iranian-Canadian community. Today we have over 500 members, and our membership is growing. Our community has been alarmed by the suboptimal quality of service provided to our relatives, colleagues, and friends by your ministry's staff at the Canadian embassy in Tehran. We have received numerous complaints about the lack of respect with which visa applicants are treated, and the rapid downturn in the number of visas that are issued.

In particular, we have been informed that the majority of invitees to three significant academic and cultural events in Canada have been turned away, preventing them from making what would have been important contributions to intercultural and academic dialogue in Canada. This trend is especially troubling since the majority of the cultural and academic programs damaged by the visa restrictions, are funded by the Canadian government.

900 people sign petition decrying Ottawa's denial of visitors' visas for their family members in Iran

An Iranian-Canadian grad student at the University of Toronto has collected 900 signatures in just a few weeks from people like her whose families have been refused visas to visit. And the Iranian Canadian Congress says it's time to make it an election issue.

The first of these events was the Tirgan Iranian Festival, which was held at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto on July 17-20. The Harbourfront Centre, as you know, receives the bulk of its funding from the Federal Government. This festival was the largest festival of its kind in the history of the Iranian diaspora and was financially supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage, Ontario's Ministry of Tourism, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, among others. Many of the key invitees to the event, who are among Iran's leading artists and performers, were denied visas, despite having invitations from the festival's organizers and from Harbourfront Centre. The second main event of the Iranian community this summer was the bi-annual conference of the International Society of Iranian Studies, which was held at Toronto's Park Hyatt Hotel on July 31-August 2.We have been informed by this event's organizers that, similarly, a number of Iran's most distinguished scholars, who had official invitations from the University of Toronto and the conference organizers, have been denied visas and therefore cannot attend the event.

Finally, we have been informed about similar policies regarding the 5th International Reunion of Sharif University of Technology Association held on August 1-4 2008 in Vancouver, BC, Sharif University, as you know, is Iran's leading centre for science and engineering education. We have been saddened to discover that here, too, your ministry has imposed collective punishment on some of the most distinguished members of Iran's scientific community and their interlocutors in Canada. We feel that our relatives, friends and colleagues in Iran should not fall victim to political squabbles.

We would like to request a meeting with you and your staff to discuss the criteria your ministry's representatives in Tehran use to grant or deny visas to applicants who have official invitations from reputable Canadian institutions, and are invited for short visits to Canada.

Please let us know when you can meet with ICC representatives to discuss these issues.

Regards,

Saeed Hariri President
