CIBC SUPPORTING UKRAINIANS FLEEING THE WAR
In the four weeks since Russia launched an all-out assault on Ukraine, purposely targeting and murdering civilians, almost 4 million people have been forced to leave Ukraine. This is the gravest humanitarian crisis in Europe since WWII. We are immensely grateful to the many people, businesses, and institutions in Canada who are ready to provide assistance to Ukrainians displaced by Russia’s war.
Our very special thanks goes to CIBC for their generous financial contribution in support of our work assisting Ukrainians that are seeking refuge in Canada. Your contribution will go a long way in ensuring that the most vulnerable members of our community are welcomed and supported as they journey towards recovering from the devastation of war and settling in their new home, even if it is temporary.

SEARCH FOR HOUSING FOR TEMPORARILY DISPLACED UKRAINIANS IN CANADA
HOUSING FOR TEMPORARILY DISPLACED UKRAINIANS IN CANADA
As a result of the war in Ukraine, almost 2 million Ukrainians have been forced to flee their home country and seek refuge in other countries. Agencies and volunteers in various countries are trying to mobilize as many resources as possible and finding housing is one of the key, but also one of the more difficult needs to address. With this in mind, anyone planning or already traveling to Canada should make every effort to try to find temporary accommodation.
Because of the large numbers of people that are going to arrive, local volunteers will not be able to find housing for everyone who needs it.
To this end, several new platforms have been created, and existing ones have created additional opportunities to find temporary housing upon arrival in Canada.
Below are links to these platforms, where you can post your search information and see what accommodation is offered.
You can also use these applications, if you want to shelter Ukrainians by providing information about the places you can offer.
- This “Shelter” platform is currently leading, which is also recommended by the Embassy of Ukraine in Canada.
- Also Airbnb has some initiatives with housing offers for displaced Ukrainians
Airbnb.org – Host people fleeing Ukraine
- Some renting companies have offers:
Canadian rental housing organizations offering support for Ukrainians (capreit.ca)
- Few other platforms to assist in accommodations search:

CANADIAN GOVERNMENT DROPS COVID-19 TESTING FOR FULLY VACCINATED TRAVELLERS AS OF APRIL 1
Declaring Canada in a “transition phase” in the COVID-19 pandemic, federal officials have announced that fully vaccinated travellers entering Canada will not have to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test as of April 1.
Passengers may still be subjected to random PCR testing at the airport—in part to monitor for new variants— though they will not be required to isolate while awaiting their results.
Unvaccinated and partially-vaccinated travellers will still face pre-entry, on-arrival testing and quarantine requirements.
All travellers will still have to use the ArriveCAN app or online form to enter their proof of vaccination and other required information within 72 hours before their arrival in Canada. Travellers who do not complete this submission may face testing and isolation requirements, regardless of vaccination status, according to the government.
All travellers will still have to use the ArriveCAN app or online form to enter their proof of vaccination and other required information.
The requirement to be fully vaccinated in order to board federally regulated air, rail, and marine transportation remains in effect, with the government indicating no intention to lift their proof of vaccine policy for travel at this time.
