Families of Air Disaster Victims to Benefit from Canada’s New PR Pathway

Family members of Canadians who did not survive Ukrainian and Ethiopian air disasters may qualify for permanent residency. 

According to a Government release, family members of Canadians who died in Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 can leverage a new Permanent Residency program. The Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) introduced the new PR pathway to help individuals settle and support family members of air disaster victims.   

Each family unit can expect a maximum of two extended family members to benefit from the new PR pathway. A statutory declaration confirming close ties with the extended family member is mandatory by the Canadian member of the victim’s family. You must mention all extended family members, including those applying for Permanent Residency, if you want to sponsor them in the future.

Eligibility requirements

Besides not being inadmissible to Canada, the applicant must live outside Canada and have a relation with the Canadian victim of the air disaster or their family members. The following relatives of the air disaster victims or their spouses are eligible to apply for permanent residency.

The public policy is in force from August 3, 2022, to August 2, 2023. It enables extended and immediate family members of air disaster victims staying abroad to get permanent residency status.
