It was actually good to have people to whose office you could go to deal with things around contribution agreements. We have three contribution agreements with IRCC: one for settlement, one for refugee resettlement, and one for a LIP, a local immigration partnership. We have people who have never seen us, who don't deal with us on a regular basis, who don't understand the island context. It's a challenge for us to work through those situations, whereas before, as I've said, we could go and deal with things.
The other thing the IRCC officer is able to do is bring together the contribution agreement holders—there are probably six or seven of us on the island—to discuss common issues, themes, and challenges that we may be facing, and together come with some solutions. That doesn't happen anymore.
