A total 986 Gazans, the majority men and boys, have applied to enter Canada, records show. Immigration Minister Marc Miller has proposed to raise the current cap of 1,000 permits to an unspecified number.

“The Department of Immigration has not refused any applications,” cabinet wrote in an Inquiry Of Ministry tabled in the Commons. However only 14 Gazans have left the region to date due to Israeli security checks.

Of the 986 applications received to date the majority, 501, were for men and boys. “The Department of Immigration cannot finalize applications until clients have exited Gaza,” said the Inquiry.
