A person considered a “national security concern” was granted permanent residency in Canada in error, a move the federal public safety minister has condemned as “entirely unacceptable.”

According to a copy of a briefing note addressed to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale from Canada Border Services Agency President John Ossowski, it was a “series of failures” that led this unnamed person to be granted permanent residency in Canada despite being considered a concern to national security.

A copy of the 2018 briefing note was provided to CTV News by Goodale’s office, and first released through access to information laws.
