Canada will bring in 25,000 refugees by the end of February, at an estimated cost of $678 million, over six years. This is the period of time Justin Trudeau's government expects it will take to re-settle and integrate refugees, financially. The plan will prioritize full families, women-at-risk, men accompanying parents and the LGBT community. Those refugees will mainly come from UN camps in Lebanon, Turkey and Jordan.
