APPG Chair Sir Roger Gale MP has written to congratulate the new Canadian Minister for Seniors, The Hon. Kamal Khera MP, on her appointment.
As Minister for Seniors, Minister Khera helps government make decisions to support the needs of Canadian seniors, including British pensioners living in Canada. Last year, the APPG met with Ms. Khera’s predecessor, The Hon. Deb Schulte, and supported a formal request from Canada to negotiate a new reciprocal agreement with the UK Government.
Sir Roger hopes to continue this work with Minister Khera to bring pension parity for the 125,000 British pensioners residing in Canada, as a first step to end this injustice for British pensioners everywhere.
