The Liberal government is signalling its plan to stem the flow of asylum seekers crossing into Canada at unofficial entry points with a new border enforcement strategy aimed at detecting, intercepting and removing irregular migrants.

The 2019 federal budget promises a strategy costing $1.18 billion over five years to beef up border security and speed up the processing of asylum claims.

Finance Minister Bill Morneau said today the government wants to ensure Canada’s asylum system is fair and effective, and governed by the rule of law.
