New Temporary Residence Pathway to Welcome Those Fleeing the War in Ukraine

Lisa C. Citizenship & Immigration, Newcomer Information

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is launching the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET). This is a special temporary residence pathway to welcome Ukrainians and their families to Canada.

With CUAET, Ukrainians and their family members can stay in Canada as temporary residents for up to 3 years. They will also be eligible for a free open work permit or study permit, which will allow them to work or study across Canada.

Ukrainians and their family who are already in Canada can also apply to extend their visitor status or work permit for up to 3 years or apply for a new work or study permit. We will waive the application fees.
