According to a study by the Canadian medical association journal published on Monday, they found that there were 355 firearm injuries on average each year among children and death in Ontario.
One quarter of those resulted in death.
That's almost one child a day being injured by a firearm or weapon.
Researchers found that refugee children and youth were 1.4 times more likely to be shot than Canadian born residents of the same age.
Firearm injuries due to violent assault tended to occur in low-income neighbourhoods in city-scapes.
The study examined millions of records of Ontario children, teens and young adults from 2008 to 2012 and found that immigrants from Africa and Central America accounted for 70 percent of the tally.
This however, did not account for suicides.
