Financial Assistance for Ukrainians

Updated: Sep 16, 2022


Transitional financial funds will help Ukrainian nationals and their family members meet their basic needs—such as transportation and longer-term housing — as they arrive in communities across Canada and find a job. The benefit will consist of a direct one-time payment of $3,000 per adult and $1,500 per child (17 years and under).


Ukrainians and their family members who are in Canada with a valid work permit, study permit, temporary resident permit or visitor record under the Canada-Ukraine authorization for emergency travel (CUAET) will all be eligible to receive this one-time payment. We are also offering settlement services to help Ukrainians adjust to their new life in Canada. These settlement services include language training, information about and orientation to life in Canada (such as help with enrolling children in school or opening a bank account) and information and services to help find a job. We’ll continue to support Ukrainians, before and after they arrive.

Canada continues to stand with the people of Ukraine and is committed to helping Ukrainians find safe haven. That includes helping them travel to Canada and putting in place the necessary supports for Ukrainians and their families so they can be successful after they arrive. In addition to this transitional financial assistance, the Government of Canada provided three charter flights from Poland, the third of which will arrive in Halifax later today.


Applications for the assistance must be submitted through the Government of Canada’s online portal, which opened today.

· Payments will be issued through direct deposit within 5 days of the application being submitted. Applicants must therefore have a bank account with a Canadian financial institution.

· The name associated with the account must match the name written on the adult’s temporary resident status document, and those arriving should also obtain a Canadian Social Insurance Number (SIN) as soon as possible in order to be able to work.
