Refugee expectations from people to arrive in Canada: 

Canada is nowhere next to reaching its aim of greeting 81,000 refugees by the end of 2021, according to figures gathered by CBC News.

Numbers provided by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) give the department was about midway to its refugee admission aim on Oct. 31.

As of that period, Canada had greeted more than 7,800 government-assisted refugees, well under the federal government’s objective of 12,500. Canada had received just 4,500 privately sponsored refugees; the intake aim for personally sponsored refugees was 22,500.

IRCC also showed more than 32,000 refugees who passed as “protected persons” — those who demand asylum after joining the nation — which was considerably below its objective of 45,000. Source – cbc.ca

In a media report, IRCC stated global migration “has been upended by the pandemic and the entire resettlement system is operating at reduced capacity.”

It stated refugees now regularly face more difficult travel limitations in their home nations — making it more difficult for them to get out — while “international partners” like the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Refugee Agency spent time on pandemic-related closings.

“In this era of upheaval, we continue to live up to our dedication, reputation and obligation by continuing to help the world’s most vulnerable find refuge,” IRCC stated, figuring that it had eased to resettle about a third of the global refugee group in 2020. Source – cbc.ca
