Feds announce one-time $3,000 payment for Ukrainians taking refuge in Canada

Date Announced:

June 2, 2022


Immigration Minister Sean Fraser announced that Ukrainians who have fled their war-torn country for Canada can now apply for a cash payment — money the government says will help these displaced people settle into their new home. Ukrainians who are in Canada on valid work, study or temporary resident permits under the Canada-Ukraine authorization for emergency travel (CUAET) regime are eligible for a one-time payment — $3,000 for every adult and $1,500 for every child 17 years and under.
