The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Agency of Canada has written on its X page on Wednesday (20 December) that it has transferred 339 Afghan citizens to this country in a charter flight from Pakistan.
Newly arrived asylum seekers will be housed in 40 communities across Canada in the cities of Calgary, St. John’s and Windsor, the agency said.
On 15 Dec, the Canadian Immigration Department announced the transfer of 338 Afghan citizens to that country and said that since August 2021, it has transferred more than 43,835 Afghan citizens.
This department has recently announced that Canada will donate 21 million Canadian dollars to support vulnerable Afghan immigrants in five countries, including Pakistan.
Canada has said that these aids will be provided through the International Organization for Migration and this country will help Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Pakistan to better support Afghan immigrants.
