The first group of Syrian refugees will arrive in the country by aircraft on tonight just after 11 p.m.
The federal government says the first plane was originally scheduled to arrive at 9:45 p.m., but that the flight has now been delayed.
Prime Minister Trudeau, Mayor John Tory and Premier Wynne will all be on hand to greet the refugees when they arrive.
There will also be another planeload that will be arriving over the weekend.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made the announcement at the House of Commons on Wednesday and stated that they’re aiming to bring in 10,000 Syrian refugees to Canada by the end of 2015, including another 15,000 by the end of February 2016.
The flights will be landing in Toronto on Thursday, December 10th and in Montreal on Saturday, December 12th.
The first two flights bring in refugees using military aircraft.
