The asylum seeker triage pilot program is over
The federal government has quietly ended the triage program that aimed to redirect asylum seekers away from crowded shelters in Montreal and Toronto. But when the federal government initially contacted the Ontario government, the Ford government was reluctant to participate, forcing Ottawa to go to municipalities to find shelter options. Marie-Emmanuelle Cadieux, a spokesperson for Minister Bill Blair, said that this plan successfully relocated five families, but a larger program would require provincial government support.
