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).

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.
