Canada: Statement by the Canada Border Services Agency on housing of Canadian children in immigration holding centres (Press release)
Sys-Con Media – February 24, 2017
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) welcomes the University of Toronto’s International Human Rights Program (IHRP) report on Canadian children housed in immigration detention. As part of the Government of Canada’s new National Immigration Detention Framework, the CBSA is committed to creating a better, fairer immigration detention system for the dignified treatment of individuals. This includes avoiding detaining and housing children in detention facilities as much as possible while avoiding family separation, and using community-based alternatives to detention to limit the housing of children in detention facilities.
