Could please IRCC provide a more comprehensive table that includes historical asylum claims by citizenship, and not only for the Top 10 files? In including citizenship information only for the Top 10 countries files, the historical evolution of other national groups who claim asylum in Canada, but aren't now part of the top 10, is totally lost. Many thanks.
