Ottawa approved 120,668 applications under the emergency program as of May 25 and more than 35,000 Ukrainians have arrived in Canada between January 1 and May 22.
Applications for the financial assistance opened today and payments are expected to be deposited directly in newcomers’ bank accounts within five days of their applications.
The applications opened just in time for the final of three government charter flights from Poland to arrive in Canada, carrying hundreds of Ukrainian fleeing the conflict in their country.
