Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has expressed sadness at the passing of Project Director of Montreal Management Consultants Est. (MMCE), Christopher Timmins.
MMCE is at the heart of Dominica’s Housing Programme having entered into a partnership with the government to construct houses and other facilities with revenue obtained under a specially dispensed housing option of the Citizenship By Investment Programme.
MMCE announced in a statement sent to DNO today that Timmins died on Saturday, December 12, 2020.
“This is truly a great loss for MMCE and to the community as a whole,” MMCE stated. “Chris’ dedication to the company and knowledge of the industry has contributed significantly to our company’s success. We will remember Chris fondly and how extraordinary a person he was.”
In his statement, issued today, the Prime Minister affirmed, “without fear of contradiction,” that Chris’ presence was felt throughout the entire island.
“To some, he was an essential cog in the wheel of this country’s ongoing housing and health care development but for many, including myself, he was a friend whose lasting legacy will be cherished throughout Dominica for generations to come,” Skerrit remarked.
He concluded, “On behalf of the government and people of the Commonwealth of Dominica, I extend my sympathies to the management and staff of MMCE and to Chris’ family and loved ones for their profound loss. May his soul rest in eternal peace.”
