 Subject: Applications for asylum in Canada by Hungarians
 Answer in writing 

In 2010, Hungary was Canada’s top source country for asylum‑seekers, with 2 297 cases referred to the Canadian Immigration and Refugee Board, and in the first nine months of 2011 there were no fewer than 2 545 Hungarian applicants(1). Between March 2008 and November 2011, Canada received over 9 100 asylum applications from Hungarian nationals, with over 3 900 applications received between January and November 2011.

1. Is the Commission aware of the fact that the great majority of asylum applicants to Canada have been Hungarian nationals, since Canada lifted visa requirements for Hungarian nationals in 2008?

2. Could the Commission provide exact figures on the number of asylum applications by Hungarian nationals in Canada which have been approved?

3. How does the Commission assess this situation?

4. How does the Commission explain that European Union citizens account for the majority of asylum applicants in Canada?

5. Does the Commission believe that this trend has any influence on the image of the European Union with regard to respect for fundamental rights on its soil?
