The Canada-Ukraine authorization for emergency travel (CUAET) is one of the many special measures the Government of Canada has introduced to support the people of Ukraine. It offers Ukrainians and their family members free, extended temporary status and allows them to work, study and stay in Canada until it is safe for them to return home.

Canada is giving financial assistance to help Ukrainian families who are in Canada under the Canada-Ukraine authorization for emergency travel (CUAET). 

 

The assistance is a one-time, non-taxable benefit. It’s to take care of your basic needs while you get settled in Canada. You can learn more about this temporary assistance at: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/ukraine-measures/settlement/get-financial-assistance.html  

On April 9, 2022, the Honorable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, announced additional support measures for Ukrainians fleeing Putin’s war and coming via the Canada-Ukraine Emergency Travel Authorization. These measures include new income supports for Ukrainians for up to six weeks for those in need. This measure will allow them to get off to a good start in Canada and access basic necessities. We will also provide temporary hotel rooms for two weeks to ensure that those who need a place to stay have access to initial accommodation.
