Canada Extends Support to Families Affected by Haiti’s Crisis




Canada Offers Support for Families Impacted by Haiti's Crisis

In response to the ongoing crisis in Haiti, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced temporary support measures for family members of Canadians and Haitian nationals unable to return home due to the volatile security situation in the country.

Effective immediately, Haitians with temporary resident status in Canada, such as students or workers, can apply for study or work permits or status extensions free of charge. This measure aims to provide relief and stability for those affected by the unrest in Haiti, allowing them to continue their studies or employment without the added burden of fees.

The support measures also extend to foreign relatives who left Haiti due to the crisis. These individuals will be eligible to apply for the same fee exemptions, ensuring that they can maintain their legal status in Canada during this challenging period.

Additionally, eligible individuals will receive three months of health coverage through the Interim Federal Health Program, addressing potential healthcare needs and ensuring access to essential medical services.

Canada’s efforts to support those affected by the crisis in Haiti go beyond these temporary measures. Amid the volatile security situation, the Canadian government has already facilitated the safe transportation of 681 people, including Canadian citizens, permanent residents, and temporary residents, from Haiti to Canada.

With approximately 44,000 Haitian temporary residents currently residing in Canada, these support measures signify the government’s commitment to addressing the unique challenges faced by this community during times of crisis in their home country.

By providing fee exemptions, status extensions, and healthcare coverage, Canada aims to alleviate the burden on affected families and individuals, allowing them to focus on their well-being and future prospects without the added stress of administrative or financial obstacles.

As the situation in Haiti continues to evolve, the Canadian government remains vigilant and prepared to adapt its support measures as necessary, ensuring that those impacted by the crisis receive the assistance they need during these challenging times.
