    Markham, Ontario – With Lion dances and well wishes from many of the local residents, Markham-Unionville MP Paul Chiang celebrates the grand opening of his new Constituency Office. Relocated from the previous office, the new office is at 200 Town Centre Blvd, Suite 400A, which is across from the Markham Civic Centre, and a convenient location for the people of Markham-Unionville. The office can be reached by phone at 905-470-2509 or email paul.chiang@parl.gc.ca.

    MP Paul Chiang said his Constituency Office will serve the residents of Markham-Unionville, ensuring the voice and concerns of the constituents are heard in Parliament, and providing help and information on federal matters. As a Member of Parliament, Paul Chiang said one of his functions is to provide citizens, organizations, entrepreneurs and local partners support in their interactions with the federal government. The Federal government offers programs and services, the Constituency Office can help residents navigate these programs, including Canada Pension Plan (CPP), Old Age Security (OAS), Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS), Employment Insurance Benefits (EI), Citizenship and Immigration, Passport Canada, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), Canada Student Loans (CSL), Federal funding for organizations, Veterans Affairs, Federal Crown Corporations etc. Furthermore, the MP can also offer certificates for birthdays, anniversaries or special recognition.

    Since elected as the MP for Markham-Unionville, Chiang was also appointed as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Diversity and Inclusion. “As we emerge from the pandemic, our federal government is focused on the priorities that Canadians expect us to deliver on: making life more affordable, creating jobs and growing the economy, and ensuring a clean future for everyone,” said Paul Chiang. “Budget 2022 does three main things: it invests in economic growth and innovation; it invests in people; and it invests in a clean future.”  For example, the government is making it easier for Canadians to buy a home; moving forward on dental care; helping our businesses scale up and grow; making wealthy corporations pay their fair share; and implementing $10-a-day daycare, which will cut childcare fee to half by the end of this year, and eventually save Ontario families over $9,000.  

    Chiang also highlighted that thanks to the hard work of Canadian people and businesses, Canada has recovered 115% of the jobs that were lost during the first months of the pandemic, and our unemployment rate is down to just 5.2 per cent, which is the lowest on record. And, our economy is the fastest growing in the G7 according to the IMF.
