Canada has introduced measures for those affected by the situation in Ukraine

The government of Canada introduced new measures on February 24, 2022 for individuals affected by the situation in Ukraine.


The new measures that have been put in place to help people affected by the ongoing situation in Ukraine include:

  • urgently processing new and replacement passports and travel documents for citizens and permanent residents of Canada in Ukraine so they can return to Canada at any time (This includes immediate family members who will come with them)

  • prioritizing applications from people who currently live in Ukraine for

  • permanent residence

  • proof of citizenship

  • temporary residence

  • citizenship grant for adoption

  • adding new ways to make sure people who contact us get answers as fast as possible

  • extending a temporary public policy that lets some visitors in Canada, including Ukrainians, apply for a work permit from within Canada

The government also extended the temporary public policy that allows some visitors in Canada, including Ukrainians, to apply for a work permit and stay in Canada while their work permit application is processed.


Keeping families and loved ones together is essential. However, the government have programs that will allow Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor eligible family members to come to Canada.


Therefore, IRCC will review all applications to see if they will be prioritized. When submitting your application, you can submit your application normally. You do not need to use a special process.


The government will continue to monitor the situation in Ukraine closely, including by reuniting families in Canada. It will also prepare for all scenarios, including those that may require further immigration measures.
