Mr. Costas Menegakis (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, CPC)
Mr. Speaker, our government is proud of our record on refugees. We welcomed one out every ten resettled refugees globally, more than any other industrialized country in the world.
Last year, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees met with the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, and he recognized Canada's international leadership when it came to providing assistance to refugees.
Our comprehensive reforms to Canada's asylum system ensure that genuine refugees receive faster and fairer protections.
