A Thai cargo ship carrying more than 200 illegal Sri Lankan migrants may be headed for Canada, the National Post is reporting.

Canadian authorities are monitoring the vessel which is believed to be British Columbia-bound.

Sri Lanka’s Sunday Observer reported over the weekend that the MV Sun Sea was headed for the Canadian coast, not Australia as initially thought.

The 59-metre ship was last seen in the Gulf of Thailand.
