The House of Commons is set to vote next week on a bill that would make it illegal to leave Canada without permission.
The bill was tabled last fall and it is expected to be debated in the Commons on Wednesday.
The Conservative government has called the bill the Safe Third Country Act and has said it is aimed at protecting Canadians from the risks posed by the travel ban.
The Canadian Civil Liberties Association is also lobbying the House of Lords to bring the bill before Parliament.
The legislation would apply to people who are seeking to enter Canada without a visa and for those who are travelling abroad to do so without a valid visa.
The CRA says it has received over 2,000 calls and letters from Canadians wanting to apply for refugee status.
The government says there are only a few thousand of those who apply.
Those who apply for a temporary visa must demonstrate they are not a security threat or a danger to the security of Canada.
The agency says it receives over 1,400 applications a year and it has a backlog of over 3,000.
The department says it does not keep track of people who apply because it does so without sufficient data to ensure that there is sufficient data available to provide an accurate assessment of risk.
It says the current rules are insufficient.
But the government says it would change the current temporary visa rules if it were to pass.
The minister responsible for the Canada Border Services Agency said last month that it was taking steps to increase the number of temporary visa applications, and that he has asked the government to increase enforcement of the rules.
The CBSA said it was also working to expand its use of the Temporary Protected Status, or TPS, visa.
It said it has had over 100,000 applications processed since the start of 2017 and is currently processing applications for permanent protection from all nations, as well as individuals from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
The ministry said that, as of Dec. 31, it had received more than 14,000 TPS applications from individuals from all over the world, and was now processing an additional 3,500 from individuals who had arrived in Canada since March.
It also said it had been processing applications from people from six nations, including Iraq, Iran and Somalia.
“This is a priority,” CBSA Commissioner Ron Gourlay said in a written statement to CBC News.
“We are also working with the Canadian government to strengthen the system to increase our capacity and our enforcement capacity to detect and stop visa fraud.”
He added that the agency had been working with other partners to ensure the new rules are fair and reasonable.
The Conservatives say they are protecting Canadians by making it easier to get TPS.
However, the CBSA says it is only working with countries that have ratified the UN Refugee Convention and that the current TPS rules are not fair to all refugees.
The U.S. also says that Canada is not keeping pace with other countries in its global crackdown on refugees.
It has accused Canada of not doing enough to fight the flow of refugees into the U. S. It was not clear if the Canadian Conservative government would take a position on the U,S.
criticism, which it has taken for granted.
