The FBC FCN considers international, national, regional and local matters that negatively affect Black Canadians and raise matters of concern directly during its meetings with government officials and political parties.
Please find below an excerpt and a link to a letter we sent to Minister Hussen requesting a meeting to discuss current federal deportation and removal policies, particularly as they affect Black children under government care.
Dear Minister Hussen,
The Federation of Black Canadians (FBC FCN) is writing you to request a meeting at your earliest convenience to discuss current federal deportation and removal policies, particularly as they affect Black children under government care.
As the Minister responsible for the Citizenship Act and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA), FBC FCN would be pleased to work with you and community partners to explore ways to ensure that the implementation and development of deportation and removal policies reaffirm the principle of equity and Canada’s humanitarian tradition while protecting the safety and security of all Canadians.
We thank you for your attention and looking forward to hearing from you soon.
