Halton Region, together with its Local Municipalities, community partners and agencies work together to provide essential programs, services and supports. This collective work contributes to the quality of life, safety and health for so many residents across the region. In coordination with its local partners and the Provincial and Federal Governments, Halton continues to address community needs and emerging issues such as the tragic circumstances faced by Ukrainians.
Millions of Ukrainians have been displaced and the Government of Canada is committed to providing Ukrainians and their families with a safe haven while the war continues in their home country. Working together with residents, businesses, our local partners and the Provincial and Federal Governments, Halton Region welcomes Ukrainian newcomers to our community. Along with our partners, we will offer supports to newcomers and assistance to those who want to help newcomers get resettled in Halton.
The Federal Government has established the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET), and classifies Ukrainian arrivals as “visitors”—not “refugees”. Learn more about Regional supports for Ukrainian newcomers.
