A report prepared in January by the federal Immigration Department warned of a “perfect storm” of circumstances that could prompt more Tamil migrants to board ships bound for Canada.

The report notes the end of the civil war last year saw more than 100,000 Tamils released from refugee camps in Sri Lanka, where economic and social issues stemming from the conflict persist.

It also says Canada has a large, relatively wealthy Tamil population.
