NAT100 – (War-Family-Reunification)
OTTAWA. x–17s. Immigration Minister Marc Miller is increasing the number of applications that will be processed under a much-criticized program to reunite people in the Gaza Strip with their Canadian relatives. The program initially had a cap of one-thousand applications that could be accepted into processing, but Miller is now increasing that number to five-thousand, each of which can include multiple family members. Miller’s department says it has issued more than 170 temporary-resident permits, but doesn’t know whether anyone has actually reached Canada.

TAG: The government is facing criticism over the program, as well as a separate one for people fleeing the civil war in Sudan that started a year ago, with Miller saying people might not be resettled until the end of this year.
