Canada is setting up tents near the U.S. border to house hundreds of migrants crossing over from New York.
Soldiers built the temporary camp Wednesday, and will accommodate up to 500 people who are mostly Haitians.
Reports say about 250 asylum seekers are arriving to Montreal daily.
Quebec has also opened several locations including its Olympic stadium, a former hospital, and a school to house the migrants.
Officials say the influx is due to false information claiming migrants will immediately obtain residency after entering Canada.
