#ISIS next Door? #Canada to accept 10,000 #Syrians within one year!  

 

Canada’s conservative government on Saturday said that it would accept 10,000 Syrian refugees within one year by simplifying and speeding up the immigration application process. Visa officers will no longer ask the applicants to prove that they are refugees through a United Nations refugee agency, but will instead “presume those fleeing the conflict meet the definition of a refugee, which will make processing faster,” the Ministry of Immigration and Citizenship said in a statement.

As a result, “we anticipate meeting Canada’s current commitment of resettling 10,000 Syrians by September 2016 – 15 months earlier than planned. Canada’s existing commitment to resettle 23,000 Iraqis will also be fulfilled by the end of this year,” the statement read.
