Since the Taliban gained full control of Afghanistan in August, the Canadian government has said it will provide shelter to 40,000 refugees from Afghanistan. The admission of the first immigrants to the country is taking place against the backdrop of an increase in Covid-19 cases, which is considered to be the 4th wave of pandemics in Canada.
The IDPs are first quarantined for two weeks in one of the five hotels in Toronto. Arrivals from Afghanistan are fired at Kovid-19 and only then distributed to different parts of Canada.
Chris Frisen, Canadian Immigration Officer, says Afghan refugees stand out from others in many ways. First and foremost, it is important that Canadians get to know them better, as Canadian troops have served there for over 30 years and have many personal contacts.
However, the problem is the lack of proper documentation in some cases. In addition, Afghan refugees had to leave their homeland so quickly that most had nothing to do with it. Their basic necessities are provided with the assistance of the Government of Canada and humanitarian organizations.
