IRCC News: CUAET measures extended

Canada–Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) is one of the many special measures the Government of Canada has introduced to support the people of Ukraine. It offers Ukrainians and their family members free, extended temporary status and allows them to work, study and stay in Canada until it is safe for them to return home.

Канадсько-український дозвіл на екстрені поїздки (CUAET) — це один із низки спеціальних заходів уряду Канади на підтримку народу України. Програма передбачає надання українцям і членам їхніх сімей подовжений статус тимчасового резидента й дозволяє їм працювати, навчатися та перебувати в Канаді, допоки вони не зможуть безпечно повернутися на батьківщину.

The overseas application intake under the Canada–Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) closed on July 15, 2023. CUAET holders had until March 31, 2024, to travel to Canada under these special measures.

IRCC is now extending some CUAET measures to people who applied overseas before the deadline and who experienced delays with the processing of their application and received a positive decision on or after February 4, 2024. These people will have until July 31, 2024, to arrive in Canada and apply for an inland study permit and an open work permit free of charge, once approved. 

Settlement services also remain available to all Ukrainian temporary residents and their dependants in Canada until March 31, 2025, so they can be fully involved in Canadian communities while they are here. The one-time financial assistance and the emergency temporary accommodations supports will no longer be available to any CUAET holders arriving in Canada after March 31, 2024. All Ukrainians and their family members who are in Canada as temporary residents can access free settlement services until March 31, 2025.
