On 17 March 2022, the Honourable Sean Fraser, the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, announced the launch of the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET). The CUAET is a special, accelerated temporary residence pathway for Ukrainians seeking safe haven in Canada while the war in their home country continues. With the CUAET, Ukrainians and their immediate family members of any nationality may stay in Canada as temporary residents for up to 3 years.

Want to do your part in helping Ukrainians impacted by the war?

Look no further. You can help right here in our local Shuswap, British Columbia, community. A team of over 60 local residents, from Sicamous to Chase, are getting ready to welcome Ukrainian families. Two families are expected to arrive in August and one family in September.

In addition to financial donations, support is needed in various areas such as transportation, schooling, social and orientation.  For more information on how you can help, visit
