Person of ‘national security concern’ was accidentally granted permanent residency

Not a suspect?

A person of “national security concern” was granted permanent residency “due to a series of failures” by the Canadian border agency and immigration department.

In light of the incident both departments have had to introduce changes in what the public safety minister’s office is calling a “completely unacceptable” mistake.

The changes were outlined in a briefing note sent by Canada Border Services Agency president John Ossowski to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale in early 2018 regarding the 2017 error.
