Canada’s Support to Ukraine: New Pathway for Family Reunification Launched
Since its inception in March 2022, the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) has provided temporary refuge to more than 166,000 Ukrainian nationals. Building upon this aid, Canada introduces a new pathway to facilitate permanent residence for Ukrainians who seek to reunite with their families and build a future in Canada.
The New Family Reunification Pathway: Canada
Permanent Residence for Ukrainians
This initiative, set to begin on October 23, 2023, offers permanent residence to those who have fled Russia’s invasion and wish to establish a new life in Canada.
To qualify for the new pathway, Ukrainian nationals must be in Canada with temporary resident status and have one or more family members already residing in the country. Eligible family members include spouses, common-law partners, parents, grandparents, siblings, children, or grandchildren of either Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
Detailed information about the program will be made available closer to the launch date in October.

As the challenges persist, Canada stands firm in its commitment to provide ongoing support and refuge to Ukrainians.
