On July 15, 2023, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced a new pathway for Ukrainians to help keep families together. This pathway will provide permanent residence to Ukrainian nationals who have fled Russia’s illegal invasion and are currently in Canada with temporary resident status and have one or more family members in Canada, including spouses, common-law partners, parents, grandparents, siblings, and children or grandchildren of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident. Ukrainians holding a visa under the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) will have until March 31, 2024, to travel to Canada under the temporary special measures. Once in Canada, temporary residents will be eligible to apply for an extended stay of up to three years through study permits and open work permits, which will be given priority.
