How do I apply for assistance?

To receive financial assistance, you need to complete two steps – open a bank account with a Canadian bank and apply for assistance .

1. Opening a bank account

To open a bank account, you will need a passport and a temporary residence status document – IMM1442. This document is considered to be a document on the final date of stay (visitor record), study permit (study permit) or work permit (work permit). In the case of Ukrainians, this may be a work permit, which will be issued at the airport upon arrival. The IMM1442 document must have a mark located in Canada according to CUAET.

Next, when applying for financial assistance, you will need to provide an account number, a branch transit number, and an institution number. Read more about how to open a bank account in Canada here.
