680 News revealed that about $100 million was allotted by the Liberal platform for this year's refugee resettlement plan and an additional $100 million is slated for the United Nations refugee agency, as they co-ordinate global resettlement efforts. However, the Canadian Press is said to have obtained a government document that shows the resettlement plan is being pegged at a cost of $1.2 billion over the next six years. These figures mean that approximately $876.7 million would be required in 2015-2016 alone. Canada's screening of the refugees spans multiple departments, and the departments slated to receive funds are the Canada Border Services Agency, Defence, Global Affairs Canada, Immigration, Public Health, and Shared Services Canada.
Upon arrival, the Syrian women, children, and families will be initially housed in military bases that have been prepared for their arrival. There will also be prepared housing in hotels and abandoned hospitals. Reports have also noted that the Canadian government is also ensuring that none of the housing locations for the Syrian refugees will be in tents because they seek to distance Canada's program from temporary camps. The majority of those incoming will be arriving in Toronto and Montreal. Most of the refugees will be coming from Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey, and about 900 refugees are expected to arrive each day.
