    The consulate in Toronto is not answering calls or emails. During their closure, they said to call between 9-12pm, you call, no answer. You email, no answer. Now they’re open for appointments – guess what, you call, no answer…you email, no answer. So basically they’re not open. I phoned the embassy in Ottawa yesterday and the lady said they have received so many complaints for the same thing. She let me know that she had just got off the phone with them and told them people can’t get through and they told her they have two people manning the phones – well something is clearly wrong and not working. In addition, their voicemail is not set up and be careful what links you click on when on their website as they send you to inappropriate sites. A complete disaster all around. My husband, DURING the pandemic, was able to make an appt at the Jamaican consulate online, get in to do his passport and all was well. This is an embarrassment.
