The Trudeau government’s given the city of Toronto $11-million to help with asylum seeker costs.
In addition, Ottawa’s also agreed to pay for hotel rooms for the hundreds who have been staying in student residences at Humber and Centennial colleges since May.
At one time, there nearly 800 in those facilities but that’s down to less than 300 ahead of an August 9 deadline to make way for the return of students.
The rest, who’d been staying in the dorms have found permanent housing elsewhere in the region.

After meeting with Mayor John Tory at City Hall, Border Security Minister Bill Blair said Ottawa will pay for hotel rooms for those displaced asylum seekers until September 30 in order to find a more permanent option.
Plus by that time, a long-promised triage centre, that’ll redirect them from cities like Toronto and Montreal, is expected to be up and running in Cornwall.
