IRCC announced new financial support for housing solutions for asylum seekers

On January 31, 2024, Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), announced an additional $362.4 million for the Interim Housing Assistance Program (IHAP) for 2023–2024. The IHAP funds provincial and municipal governments to address housing pressures due to increased asylum claimants. This funding will support areas with high shelter demand and prevent homelessness among asylum claimants. This is in addition to the $212 million funded last summer. Considering community pressures, the Government will continue working with provinces and municipalities to respond to the refugee influx.
