Canada has several established pathways for resettled refugees and refugee claimants to seek safety in the country. New pathways are periodically developed to rapidly address emerging situations.
In March 2022, the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) was implemented to support Ukrainians and their family members. Providing a free, temporary visitor status, CUAET allows successful applicants to live, work and study in Canada until it is safe to return to Ukraine.
This tool summarizes the key similarities and differences between Canada’s humanitarian pathways—including CUAET —to help communities understand and address each group’s unique situation and needs. Note that changes to all pathways can occur as the federal government adapts to changing situations, particularly in the case of CUAET.
