Support displaced Ukrainians arriving in Canada

On March 28, 2022, the Government of Canada announced it would expand settlement support for Ukrainians coming to Canada. Ukrainian nationals will continue to arrive in Canada via several pathways, including the Canada-Ukraine authorization for emergency travel (CUAET). All Canadians have an opportunity to support the arrival of displaced Ukrainians. Learn more about how you can help below by viewing our “How Can I Help” flowchart.

On March 22, 2023, the Government of Canada extended the deadline to apply for the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) to July 15, 2023. In addition, it announced that settlement services, including one-time financial assistance, will be available for displaced Ukrainians until March 31, 2024 (you can watch the video announcement on this link).

Corporate Donations

The Government of Canada has partnered with CISSA-ACSEI and the national network of settlement organizations to provide direct and critical support to those in need. Canadian businesses are invited to donate through the portal Call to action: Canadian Industry for Ukraine.
