We are working with the federal government to provide every province with a designated institution that will do the necessary checks and match these offers with requests from the displaced persons.

 

The process is ongoing and varies from province to province. You might have already been contacted by these institutions. If not – please allow us some more time to set up the process.

 

If you are offering accommodation for displaced Ukrainians, and you have not heard from anyone yet, you can also visit the following websites which are accepting offers and actively matching families:

The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Citizenship and Refugees recently announced additional details on the temporary income support measures that will help Ukrainian nationals and their accompanying immediate family members who are in Canada as part of the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET). Parents and guardians can submit one application for themselves, a spouse and dependants. Payments will be made through direct deposit; therefore, potential applicants will require a bank account with a Canadian financial institution, which must bear the same name as the name of the adult’s temporary resident status document (work permit, study permit, temporary resident permit or visitor record).

 

Online applications for these new measures are now open:

 

Please click here for more information and to apply: Ukraine immigration measures: Financial assistance – Canada.ca

 

Provinces and territories may offer emergency and/or temporary income support depending on your region.

Specific assistance for students can be found at the following link:

Students are also encouraged to contact Student Services at their individual institutions.

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.

You can also contact your local UCC branch to check with them directly what do they accept and which items are needed.

There is no specific sponsorship program, so if you have someone you personally know and want to sponsor, you can proceed on your own. The Ukrainian family or person can apply for a Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) document: Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel – Canada.ca and you can make travel and housing arrangements privately.  

The Government of Canada has created a site for Canadian employers to post employment opportunities:

Employers may also contact our local UCC branches in case Ukrainians ask them for specific jobs opportunities.
