Haiti - Canada : Only 8% of Haitians who entered Canada illegally eligible for asylum (2017)
Of the estimated 10,000 Haitians who crossed the Canadian border illegally in 2017 (partial figure) only 8% were eligible to apply for asylum. Which means that more than 90% have been or will be sent back to Haiti.

So far, there is no overall statistics on the number of people who entered Canada illegally in 2017, but the authorities recognize that this number may be over 20,000 and even higher in 2018.

Although Canadian authorities have repeatedly warned that crossing the Canadian border on foot, through unofficial entrances, is not a guarantee of being able to stay in the country, many people continue to arrive, because there is a lot of misinformation on this topic and it is a permanent problem that is likely to get worse. Between January and April of this year, nearly 8,000 people (mostly Haitians) have been intercepted in Quebec.

Three reasons influence the choice of thousands of people to enter Canada illegally through an unofficial entry point:

1 - Information on the existence of a TPS system exists in Canada is false;

2 - Information that suggests that crossing the border illegally confers a protection status on Canada, is false;

3 - Information that asserts that there is a high probability that the asylum application is approved is false

The only way to get to Canada is the legal form and all the information can be found on the website : www.cic.gc.ca/

Let us point out to our Haitian compatriots who cross the border illegally, alone or with their families, that they risk in case of rejection of their asylum request (in more than 90% of cases) to be sent back to their country of origin (Haiti) and not the United States (having not officially crossed the border, Canada can not return them to the US).

In addition, they risk losing the opportunity to come to Canada legally in the future as residents and can not return to the United States either.
