Canadian borders a very porous, we just don't seem to be bothered as much by illegal immigrants
"Illegal immigration in Canada
There is no credible information available on illegal immigration in Canada. Estimates of illegal immigrants range between 35,000 and 120,000.
James Bissett, a former head of the Canadian Immigration Service, has suggested that the lack of any credible refugee screening process, combined with
a high likelihood of ignoring any deportation orders, has resulted in tens of thousands of outstanding warrants for the arrest of rejected refugee
claimants, with little attempt at enforcement. Unlike in the U.S., refugee claimants in Canada do not have to attempt re-entry to learn the status
of their claim. A 2008 report by the Auditor General Sheila Fraser stated that Canada has lost track of as many as 41,000 illegal immigrants.
This number is predicted to increase drastically with the expiration of temporary employer work permits issued in 2007 and 2008, which were not
renewed in many cases because of the shortage of work due to the recession"
I know wiki, not a great source, but I'm to lazy to go to government sites right now.
