Canada to set up border camp as number of asylum seekers swells

Quebec government to give update on asylum seekers

The shelters have lighting and heating and are being set up in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, the Quebec border crossing where the bulk of recent asylum seekers have been processed.

"We have about 100 personnel here on the ground who will set up 25 tents in order to house approximately 500 people", Maj.

Since late July, more than 2,500 Haitians have fled the United States seeking asylum in Canada, crossing the border into the Francophone province of Quebec.

The military would have no role in security matters, Le Bouthillier said in emailed statement.

In addition, on Wednesday, public health officials announced the site of the Royal Victoria Hospital will be transformed into a shelter with 300 to 320 beds.

As many as 600 refugee claimants have been given beds in the Olympic Stadium.
