MP says Haitians ‘misinformed’ on Canadian asylum laws

A Montreal-area MP says he’s learned that many Haitians in Miami have been misinformed about what it takes to come to Canada.

Emmanuel Dubourg says he’s seen social media posts falsely claiming Canada has a special residency program for Haitians and that Canadian officials are in the United States to facilitate their entry.

The Haitian-Canadian MP addressed the media Friday from Miami, where he spent two days speaking to local leaders about the influx of mostly Haitian asylum seekers who have crossed the border into Canada in recent weeks.
