Liberals reach resettlement goal as 25,000th Syrian refugee arrives in Canada - The Globe and Mail

“While the minister has previously said the government hopes to settle a total of 35,000 to 50,000 by the end of 2016, he said the exact number – “in that ballpark” – will be outlined in the government’s annual immigration targets, expected by March 9. Out of that total, 25,000 are expected to be government-sponsored refugees. The remainder will arrive as private sponsors or through a blended private– and government-sponsorship process.”
