Alberta REALTORS® can help Ukrainians fleeing the invasion of their country for the safety of Canada.
The Canadian government is providing Ukrainians with emergency travel authorization and temporary status to work and stay in Canada. As home to one of the largest Ukrainian populations outside of Ukraine, Alberta is expected to be a preferred destination for many fleeing their country. Since they are arriving outside the usual immigration protocols, these refugees don’t have the same access to Canada’s established newcomer support programs.
This is where AREA and its members can assist.
Do you or someone you know have housing they would like to donate to refugees for a period of 3-12 months? Do you want to support in other ways, such as offering supplies, transportation, or job support?
AREA has partnered with Rogers Communications Inc., Servus Credit Union, and the Calgary Mosaic Refugee Clinic, to create a robust package to help support both hosts and refugees when they arrive. The package will include, but will not be limited to*:
AREA and its partners are making an initial commitment to extend this package to up to 50 families.
