Ottawa opened a temporary residency program for extended Palestinian families in Gaza

On January 9, 2024, Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, opened the new temporary resident pathway for extended family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents residing in Gaza.

This measure aims to provide a safe haven for Palestinians living in Gaza with supporting family members in Canada.

Eligible family members include spouses, children, siblings, parents or grandparents of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and their immediate dependents.

Once in Canada, they can apply for a fee-exempt study or work permit.

They will also receive three months of health coverage and access to settlement services like language training and job support.

Despite the challenging exit conditions in Gaza, Canada is working with partners to facilitate the exit of eligible individuals.
