Eligible family members of the victims of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 and Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752 can apply for permanent residence.
On May 12, Canada’s minister of immigration put in a new public policy to allow families of air disaster victims to apply for permanent residence.
Family members of those whose lives were lost in the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 and Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752 will be able to apply for permanent residence. The new policy will be in effect until May 11, 2022.
For now, the new measure is only available to family members who are currently living in Canada. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is working on further measures to facilitate permanent residence applications for certain members of victims’ families who are outside Canada, according to a media release. The immigration department says it will make another announcement once the new measures are in place.
