Teams of Canadian soldiers stretched canvas across the metal frames of tents at a camp site near the Quebec-U.S. border Wednesday as they helped fellow authorities cope with the crush of asylum seekers crossing into Canada.
The refugee camp would be able to house up to 500 people and would be built in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Quebec.

Around 250 asylum seekers are arriving each day in Montreal, the largest city in Canada's mainly French-speaking province of Quebec.
Almost 100 soldiers will be in Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, across the border from Champlain, New York, on Wednesday to set up the tents and add to temporary facilities already organised by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and Canadian Border Services Agency. Military personnel will not participate in security matters, the armed forces said, and most of the soldiers will return to their home bases once the camp is built.

The measure was adopted by former President Barack Obama (2009-2017) administration after the 2010 natural disaster, but now the Department of National Security considers Haiti as a safe country.
The temporary facility is being built in anticipation of a large influx of asylum seekers from the US, said Stephane Malepart, a spokesperson for the Canada Border Services Agency.
The Trudeau government ended its own TPS designation for Haitians previous year, inviting its 3,200 holders to apply for residency on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.
