Ukrainians who arrived in Canada under the CUAET will not face deportation

Immigration Minister Marc Miller confirmed that Canada will not send back any Ukrainians who arrived under the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET), even if their visas expire, as long as the war with Russia continues. The minister's assurance came during a housing strategy announcement on March 27. In the past, Miller did not dismiss the possibility of temporarily providing ongoing aid for Ukrainians in Canada. Between March 2022 and February 2023, Canada received over a million applications under the CUAET temporary residence program, of which 960,091 were approved, but only 248,726 Ukrainians moved to Canada. Surveys indicate that roughly 90% of these Ukrainians wish to stay permanently.
