Canada makes immigration easier for Turks, Syrians

Canada on March 18 moved to ease immigration for Turkish and Syrian citizens already in the country, a month after an earthquake killed more than 50,000 people in the two countries.

The 7.8 magnitude earthquake on February 6 killed more than 45,000 people in Türkiye and thousands more in neighboring Syria, and devastated hundreds of thousands of buildings.
