January 27 marks the 29th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Canada and Ukraine. There are currently more than 1.3 million Canadians of Ukrainian descent.
A new Canada–Ukraine Mobility Working Group will be established to strengthen migration between the two nations.
This working group will
- continue to ensure the integrity of our respective migration and visa frameworks
- identify and improve mobility opportunities for Ukrainians seeking to come to Canada
- finalize a youth mobility agreement that will provide Canadian and Ukrainian youth with opportunities to travel
The 2021‒2023 Immigration Levels Plan, tabled on October 30, 2020, sets out a path for responsible increases to immigration targets to help the Canadian economy recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Word of the Day:Mobility: the ability to move easily.
