Malaysian Association of Canada (MAC) is looking forward to a conversation with Dr. David Edward-Ooi Poon.
When: Sunday, Aug 15, 2021 | 9pm EDT
Where: Facebook Live Stream
Dr. David Edward-Ooi Poon is a Canadian family physician training to be a medical officer of health, and founder of Faces of Advocacy: Open The Canadian Border & Discontinue Quarantine Hotels a grassroots organization dedicated to the safe reunification of binational Canadian families during the COVID-19 related travel restrictions. With the help of over 12,000 members, they were directly responsible for the Extended Family and Compassionate exemptions into Canada. With multiple policies creating unfair immigration practices for Canadian families with loved ones overseas, his organization continues to push for safe, fair, and humane approaches to keeping families together.
In this interview, we will talk about what inspired Dr. Poon to start the organization, how to navigate the constantly changing Canadian travel requirements for Canadians and loved ones as well as what Faces of Advocacy can do for you if you wish to reunite with your loved ones in Canada during this challenging times.
