Ukrainians arriving in Canada under the CUAET program are eligible to receive a one-time non-taxable benefit of $3000 per adult and $1500 per child. Parents and guardians can submit one application for themselves, a spouse and dependants. Payments are 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).

In your pursuit of employment opportunities, it is crucial to be vigilant and protect yourself from potential scams. While most employers and job postings are legitimate, there are unscrupulous individuals and organizations who prey on unsuspecting applicants.

Verify the legitimacy of the company: Before applying for any job, conduct thorough research on the company. Check their website, search for online reviews, and ensure their contact information is valid. Be wary if the company lacks a professional online presence or if their contact details seem suspicious.

Be cautious of upfront payments: Legitimate employers should not require you to make any payment for job applications, interviews, or training. Beware of any requests for upfront fees, as they could be a sign of a scam. Reputable companies typically cover these costs themselves.

Exercise caution with personal information: Be cautious when sharing sensitive personal information, such as your Social Security number, bank account details, or copies of identification documents. Genuine employers will only ask for essential information when you have progressed further in the hiring process.

Watch out for unrealistic promises: If a job posting or communication makes promises that sound too good to be true, exercise caution. Beware of job offers that guarantee high salaries with minimal effort or quick promotions without relevant experience. Genuine opportunities require effort, qualifications, and experience.

Trust your instincts: If something feels off or if you sense red flags during the application process, trust your gut instinct. Pay attention to poor communication, unprofessional emails or phone calls, or inconsistent information. If it doesn’t feel right, it’s better to err on the side of caution.

Research the job offer thoroughly: Look out for signs of potential scams, such as vague job descriptions, excessive grammatical errors, or poorly written emails. Scammers often use generic job titles and descriptions to attract a broader audience.

Avoid unsolicited job offers: Be wary of unsolicited emails or messages offering you a job you didn’t apply for. Scammers may try to lure you with enticing offers or claims that you are a perfect fit for a position you never pursued. Exercise caution and validate the legitimacy of such offers before proceeding.

Don’t fall for financial schemes: Be cautious of job offers that involve money transfers, check cashing, or reshipping packages. These can be part of fraudulent activities where you unwittingly become involved in illegal operations.
