How do I get information
I have called several times and no answer only a recording to leave a message.I have left messages and no reply. How do I get to speak to someone in this Consulate.
Do I have to go in person to make an appointment to speak to someone?
I am a Trinidadian and is finding it impossible to get in touch with someone from the consulate.
Please help!

Original Affidavit
Last July I went to Trinidad and decided to apply for a new birth certificate. All the people there seem to be very polite but the only thing is I can't understand why they kept my original affidavit. The girl who attended to me said it is compulsory they have to keep it. Is that the rule? Oh by the way it is true what the previous person is saying. The office in Toronto do not return calls. So I am just wasting my breath leaving messages.

Who is making the decisions in the Government of T&T
I rang the T&T embassy in Toronto for information with regard to Restoration of Citizenship today to find out how long the process will take. The secretary/clerk was very professional and polite. I was surprised to learn that the Department which handles the Restoration of Citizenship applications in Trinidad was closed since 2013 because of some health issue in the building and that there is now a backlog pending the office's reopening. What kind of government is ruling Trinidad and Tobago? Couldn't they find a building to house the staff for this purpose? Don't they have any regard for people and their lives? I am sure that there are hundreds who are depending on these papers for one reason or the other. I hope someone from the government reads this. Are they trying to keep us out? I hope that the electors see this post.

good results
I visited the tt embassy in toronto, in the early 1990s i had my passport renewed without any problems, now that i am also canadian citizen i still keep my tt passport up to date, in spring of 2014 i had my tt passport renewed without any problem what so ever and i was able to obtain a passport for my 8 year old daughter, i carried all the necessary documents to assist the processing easier, i am always humble and polite with the staff and i will be picking up my daughter passport in a few days. my passport usually takes about 12 weeks, i am very sorry for the ones who had bad experiences at our embassy. They are a very humble and professional group of people. i had very good experience.Hope your next visit is shorter and a plesant one.
good luck

When will this poor inefficient service change?
I have applied for my passport since April 2014, to date its 6 months later and I have still not received it. After several months of constant communication and even following up myself with the Trinidad passport office it's finally complete. After having conversations with many employees at the embassy @ 185 Sheppard Ave including but not limited to Keeva Clarke, consul -Vidhya Maharaj a woman named ms Thompson, and Ravi Maharaj they cannot seem to locate where my passport is. I visited the office today and was appalled and embarrassed by the poor unprofessional service I received. No one seemed to know anything. The consul herself spoke to me in haste saying we are rude to her. She needs to wake up smell the coffee, this is Canada, she need to keep up with people living in a first world country, if you are inefficient, lazy and express that "don't care" attitude you should expect people to be irate.
I was told that the passport will take a few days to arrive in Toronto by the Trinidad office and mentioned the name of the person I spoke to. The representatives at the Consulate office said there is no such person by name that worked there and offered to call them to confirm, only to realize she was wrong. They run that place like it is a shop on the corner! Very disappointed!!!!
One will expect that by now better coordination can be in place, especially if there is an emergency to have better meaningful systems and support from the consul here in Canada. Trinidadians need to realize that they are the only ones that are responsible for the condition of their government services and move towards greater efficiency, it will hinder their own advancement.

I really wish they could hire Canadians to run this place.
I don’t expect anything else but to be serviced with efficiency and respect. It is just a common courtesy to expected from a government service.
If there is someone out there that can help, please help with this.

we have applied for our machine readable passport way back in April and still have not received them yet. I need it to get other documents in Trinidad and was unable to get those documents on my last trip because I did not get my passport. After hundreds of phone call I did manage to talk to someone who simply told me that the passports were not there, when I asked how can I find out some more about the passports she rudely said that she does not work in that department and could not help me. She offered no help, I don't know when these Trinis will change, even though they live and work in Canada they still have teir Trini attitude and work in their Trini pace. Nothing mean anything to them, I don't know why the trinidad government don't hire Canadian people to do this job for them because Canadian passport take for the most only one week to get back. Although I am a dedicated Trini I am rather dissappointed in this system.
