Federal ministers visit Canterbury City Community Centre


Federal Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs Minister, Andrew Giles MP, and Member for Watson, Tony Burke MP, visited the Canterbury City Community Centre (4cs) on July 25 in Lakemba, Sydney.

The 4c is a well established non-government organisation that provides a range of community services in Sydney’s Inner West.

During the visit, Mr Giles and Mr Burke heard about the history of the Centre’s work with the local community, including programs and initiatives implemented in aged care and community services.

CEO of the Centre, Esta Paschalidis-Chilas, thanked Mr Giles for visiting and spoke about his recent work on temporary protection visas.

“Given the diverse community we serve, it was an excellent opportunity to thank the Minister for changes he is implementing around providing permanency to people on temporary protection visas, many of whom live in our local community,” Ms Paschalidis-Chilas said.

“These are people who have been living with uncertainty and stress for many years.”
