A Ministry of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship spokesperson has announced: “We have received requests to slow down arrivals in some communities. We are accommodating those requests to ensure that in the end, the refugees are well taken care of”.
Those in charge of resettling refugees in four cities – Halifax, Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver – have requested a temporary halt on the flow of Syrian refugees. This is due to the lack of permanent and temporary housing. To lift off the pressure from the under-staffed Resettlement Assistance Program Service Provider Organizations, the new arrivals will be delayed a few days before getting to their final destination.
