Program for Ukrainians

Since the beginning of the full-scale war in Ukraine, the Canadian government has created a special CUAET program that allowed Ukrainians to obtain local visas. More than 1 million people have applied for this program, but only about 170 thousand citizens have used it. In the summer of 2023, Canada terminated the CUAET program and it is now unavailable. Now Ukrainians can enter Canada under the same rules.
