Minister Alexander Announces Citizenship Judge Appointment

OTTAWA, Nov. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Canada's Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander today announced that Trang Angie Nguyen has been appointed for a three-year part-time term as a Citizenship Judge for the Vancouver Area.

Prior to her appointment, Trang Angie Nguyen worked as an Accredited Court Interpreter for the Attorney General in British Colombia.

Citizenship judges are responsible for making decisions on citizenship applications, presiding over citizenship ceremonies and administering the oath of citizenship to new citizens.

Citizenship judges are appointed by the Governor in Council on the recommendation of the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration. New appointees are chosen from a list of qualified candidates who have gone through rigorous screening, including a written exam, reference check and oral interview. Candidates for citizenship judge appointments are evaluated against the skills required by the position: information-seeking, judgment/analytical thinking, decision making, effective communication, cross-cultural sensitivity, leadership, self-confidence, self-control and writing ability.

Building a stronger Canada: Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) strengthens Canada's economic, social and cultural prosperity, helping ensure Canadian safety and security while managing one of the largest and most generous immigration programs in the world.
