Canadians stranded in remote corners of world seek help to get home

Ottawa/IBNS: Canada may not be able to repatriate the last 10 per cent of Canadians stranded worldwide during a deadly pandemic, due to the complexity of their cases, media reports said.

Canada had been able to successfully repatriate over 40,681 Canadians from 107 countries on 378 flights since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

But these last cases, said the federal government of Canada on June 1, are often the most difficult and unusual.

Canadians, who had not yet been repatriated, are stranded in places like Peru, Nepal, Costa Rica, and Ecuador, etc.

Some of the problems faced by Canada's repatriation efforts for these last stranded Canadians include Canada's inability to send an entire plane to a place where a few Canadians are stranded, and flights being barred to enter some remote places, etc.

These people are being advised by the consular services to wait until the countries reopen.
