Knowing well that a lot of persons and families have been left stranded as a result of the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, Canadian Government has in support of those affected created the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET). The creation is to help Ukrainians and their family members come to Canada as quickly as possible and to as well provide them with the ability to work and study while in Canada. Note that this is strictly for Ukrainian Victims of Russia Invasion.
