The NTNP has introduced useful resources for Ukrainian nationals coming to Canada
The Northwest Territories Nominee Program (NTNP) has published the most recent and useful resources for Ukrainian nationals considering immigration to Canada.
Northwest Territories are also ready to accept Ukrainians under the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET), and special family reunification sponsorship pathway for permanent residence (PR).
In addition, NTNP also published a link for the Government of Canada’s new Job Bank for Ukrainians and employers who wish to support them, as well as a webpage with relevant links to programs specific for Ukrainians.
Canada is committed in our support for those affected by the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The government has put measures in place to help Canadian citizens and permanent residents return home and to help Ukrainians come to and stay in Canada.
The government has created Canada-Ukraine authorization for emergency travel (CUAET) which enables Ukrainians and their family members to come to Canada quickly and to work and study while in Canada.
The CUAET also allows those already in Canada to extend their visitor status, work permit, or study permit for a temporary period of time in order to continue working and studying there.
