Manitoba will soon become the fourth Canadian province to end its contracts with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and stop detaining immigrants in provincial jails. Earlier this year, British Columbia became the first Canadian province to put an end to holding migrants in provincial jails for the CBSA. By mid-September, Nova Scotia and Alberta had followed suit. The latest data from the CBSA shows that during the year that ended on March 31, 2021, there were 3,668 migrants detained by the border services in Canada. In the first three months of 2022, the number of detainees decreased compared to the end of 2021.
