British Columbia will no longer house immigration detainees in jails
The Government of British Columbia ended its agreement with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and will no longer detain migrants under Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) in the provincial jails. According to the province’s Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General Mike Farnworth, the province provided “the CBSA with 12 months’ written notice as required under the current arrangement.” The detaining of migrants under the IRPA in provincial prisons was condemned by human rights organizations in Canada as abusive and discriminatory.
