Canada among top 10 global refugee destinations

CTV Ottawa is reporting that in 2011 Canada was one of the top 10 global refugee destinations.

The list is:

  • South Africa: 110,000
  • U.S.: 76,000
  • France: 52,100
  • Germany: 45,700
  • Italy: 30,300
  • Sweden: 29,600
  • Belgium: 26,000
  • U.K.: 25,500
  • Canada: 25,000
  • Ghana: 20,100

It’s interesting that both Belgium and Sweden took in more refugees than Canada, despite having a fraction of the population and landmass that we do.
