Canada: Support Measures for Haitians

Key Points  

  • Canada introduced additional support measures for certain Haitian nationals who are impacted by the ongoing security situation within the country 


The government of Canada introduced additional temporary support measures for Haitian nationals on 23 May 2024. As a result, Haitians with valid temporary resident status in Canada can apply for a study permit, open work permit or status extension at no cost. This includes foreign national family members, regardless of nationality, who arrived as temporary residents through assisted departures from Haiti.
