IRCC announced temporary support for families impacted by Haiti's crisis

On May 23, 2024, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced support for family members of Canadians and Haitian nationals unable to return home. Effective immediately, Haitians with temporary resident status can apply for study or work permits or status extensions free of charge. This also applies to foreign relatives who left Haiti. Eligible individuals will receive three months of health coverage. Amid Haiti's volatile security situation, Canada transported 681 people, including Canadians and permanent and temporary residents, to safety. Currently, there are about 44,000 Haitian temporary residents in Canada.
