The federal government has set up a task force to help Canadian citizens and permanent residents get home from Lebanon following last week’s devastating explosion in Beirut .
It will also allow Lebanese citizens in Canada to extend their stay here if they are unable to return home because of the deadly explosion.
The measures follow last week’s announcement of $30 million in humanitarian and development assistance for the people of Lebanon.
