On March 3, 2022, the Government of Canada introduced new immigration streams for Ukrainians to come to Canada temporarily or permanently. The Government will prepare a Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel to allow an unlimited number of Ukrainians to travel Canada easily, eliminating many of the normal visa requirements. For immediate and extended family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents, Canada will introduce a special family reunification sponsorship pathway for permanent residents in the coming weeks. Ukrainian visitors, workers, and students who are currently in Canada, as well as those applied under the new measures, will be issued open work permits. The Government of Canada encourages all Ukrainians to apply through all programs.
