The City of Toronto is in the midst of budget considerations now. They have revealed what they require for support for their emergency shelter. They've doubled their shelter capacity for refugee claimants, many of whom, we're told, will ultimately be found to be unworthy and will be asked to leave the country.
The city will require $76.9 million in 2020 to continue its program to temporarily house family refugee claimants, $22.2 million to continue supporting the IRCC in delivering the regional response after 2020, and $13.1 million to continue the Willowdale Welcome Centre temporary response site for refugee singles.
What plans does the department have to recommend in this budget this compensation to the City of Toronto and to cities in Manitoba and Quebec for the support of asylum claimants?
