Service at it's worst
This is the most unprofessional office and staff I have ever dealt with. Maharaj and Hosein must learn how to deal with people. True third world mentality. Can't wait until the new government get rid of these uneducated misfits.

Excellent Service
My visit to TT Consulate was pleasant and smooth. I was treated with respect and dignity every step of the way. I need to share this experience since there are reviews that are misleading, disturbing and unfair.
I showed up without an appointment to submit my documents:- I was impressed with the calm, friendly and peaceful atmosphere. The mature gentleman at the reception desk was helpful, informative and kind.
I misunderstood the photograph requirement and Mr.Ravi Maharaj immediately resolve the issue. He sorted my documents and separated what I needed to submit. He said "don't be nervous or anxious, take your time to complete the form then you will be seen". His mannerism was reassuring, professional and polite.
Next I saw the Immigration Clerk J'eniver Farrell-Corbin, she was polite, professional and even fixed my hair for the picture(it was unruly), I could not get it to stay right.
The immigration officer Cecelia Bruce came to verify my picture on the passport. She introduced herself professionally and took the time to say "how are you today?" with a smile showing the warmth and friendliness of our culture.
On my way out, there was another female member of staff sitting at the reception. She was kind, courteous and helpful. I receive excellent service
throughout the time I was there.
My wait time was amazing compared to other offices in Canada of similar nature. I encountered nothing to complain about but one suggestion arrange for some more parking spots on the side street.
Well done Toronto TT consulate team. Keep up the good work. We need your service here.

This Embassy should be abolished - A disgrace to all T&T Nationals
The Staff needs to be removed or re-trained in public relations. Ravi Maraj should be removed from his position immediately. He never returns calls nor clear his messages. I will not rest until this embassy improves its working culture ie.to provide fast, friendly and professional services to its nationals.

I would like to know how is this office protocol is carried out I read the comments above and that is terrible what our nationals in Canada have to put up with this type of behavior does not look good, as if we are living in the primitive ages that not we are use to the same goes for Caribbean airlines. I need to know who is in charge of these people who is guarding the guards in this day and age considering that we live in Canada and there are all the social networks that can twitter a persons behavior and upload it to social network and internet so the world could see how primitive our officials are when conduction business in a foreign country that is a shame no wonder Trinidad has a high murder rate because of the ignorance in our country. I need to renew my passport and I will be going with a recorder and if needs be I will post my experience to the Trinidad and Tobago Government so they can get a first hand look at the behavior and type of service our nationals experience in Canada the consulate is suppose to be a safe haven for all nationals of Trinidad and Tobago How can anybody feel safe when you have these bullies running the consulate in Toronto get rid of them because before long our nationals will need to have a shelter to protect us and if that's the way they are behaving they we need A PROTEST at the consulate in TORONTO TO DISGRACE THEM for the CHACKA, CHACKA SERVICE THEY AT THE CONSULATE ARE PROVIDING TO US GET THEM OUT THIS IS NOT JACK WARNER service or is it people need to send a clear message that this type of behavior would not be tolerated in Canada and get rid if those lazy people who are there think that they are still in Trinidad and Tobago I cannot wait to go there and see how I would be threated by this person SHAME, SHAME, SHAME They don't give a dam about their people they are serving just the large pay check they want the job but don't want to work for the pay that's the Trinidad way and that's a shame to have to read these comments from other people
There must be someone in charge these people are a disgrace to the red white and black they represent get rid of them GOOD RIDANCE TO BAD RUBISH

Over two weeks for visitor's visa for Canada
This embassy is a joke! The website says 8 days for processing. It has been over two weeks and no one can tell you what the progress of the application is. The phone system says send an email, when you do, no response until 5 days after saying process.
Officers in the embassy itself are rude and abrupt. Shame!
Disappointed T&T National

Bad experience visiting the T&T Consulate
I had an appointment with the T&T Consulate for my passport renewal. First as a place of business, there should be parking even if we have to pay for it. However, as you turn in to the compound, you realize that the parking is not for clients so you have to back out unto the very busy Sheppard Avenue which is dangerous and then try to find parking on some street nearby.

So that started my day on a bad note. The receptionist was very polite however when I was called into a room to review my document, I became frightened and nervous because of the woman interviewing me. I did not get her name but she is a tall slim black woman with glasses. She was as some described her in one of the comments above as a prison guard but that is putting it mildly. She is ignorant and has the ability to put fear in people. One of the questions she asked me, referring to my job title, is what is that. If she was educated she would have known. After so many bad comments on this person, my question is why is she not being replaced. I have a good job and have interviewed many people so you would agree how shocked I was with this type of interviewing skills and could not believe in this age this type of person is in a position representing a country. This reflects a bad image.

Please take everyone's comments seriously and make some changes to have a more please experience renewing a Trinidad and Tobago Passport.
