Ottawa allocates roughly $224 per day (or $81,760 per year) per claimant for illegal immigrants to receive housing, food, and “essential items.” 

Ottawa allocates $224 per illegal immigrant daily to receive accommodation

Conservative MP Lianne Rood asked the government last week what “goods and services” are being provided to asylum seekers in Canada without approved applications. 

Rood published the document containing the response, where the federal government stated that unapproved immigrants receive “$140 per night per room” and roughly “$84 per day” for food, totaling $224 per day per claimant. 

Moreover, The daily total may increase when including “essential items” such as “toiletries, medicines, and diapers,” provided to immigrants at no cost. 

“Claimants in IRCC-operated hotels, regardless of how they entered Canada, are provided with accommodations and meals once they are relocated,” read the document signed by Paul Chiang, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Diversity and Inclusion.

When sharing the document online, Rood commented, “The NDP-Liberal government is giving TEN TIMES the benefits to illegal border jumpers than it is giving to help Canadian seniors! DISGRACEFUL!” 

Near the end of 2023, the IRCC documented an all-time high of 42,387 pending refugee claims by irregular border crossers, meaning an individual who illegally entered Canada without an asylum claim. 

After illegally entering Canada, 2,415 individuals made asylum claims in the country during the latter months of 2023, averaging one per hour. 

Immigrants plan to vote Conservative over Liberal despite favouritism

With the surge in immigration emerging as a divisive topic, a recent Leger poll indicates that new immigrants in Canada show a higher tendency to support the Conservative Party over the Liberal Party.

Roughly 24% of immigrants who’ve come to Canada in the last ten years prefer the Conservative Party, while 22% favor the Liberals, according to the poll. 

About 8% support the NDP, while 38% of respondents were unsure.
