Flight information for Ukrainians

Don’t book a flight until you have all your travel documents.

You and your family members can book a commercial flight to Canada as soon as you’re ready to travel. Commercial flights come at your own cost, and they give you the flexibility to choose the airline, date, flight time and destination in Canada that works best for you.

Flight support

Over the past year, we’ve worked with airlines and created partnerships with organizations to help Ukrainians come to Canada.

Below are some of the initiatives that have been developed to provide support for flights.

Ukraine2Canada Travel Fund

The Ukraine2Canada Travel Fund has ended.

If you’ve registered for a flight and have questions, you can contact Miles4Migrants.

The Ukraine2Canada Travel Fund was a partnership between the Government of Canada and Miles4Migrants, The Shapiro Foundation, Air Canada and the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto.

Canadians and Canadian businesses could donate travel points or cash to this fund. These donations were used to give free flights to Ukrainians and their family members who were in need of travel support.
