Initiated by Kateryna Palleros from Bolton, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Government of Canada

  • In the time of war, the current visa requirement for Ukrainians to enter Canada is a senseless and unacceptable barrier, which cannot be circumvented due to the current complete collapse of legal and administrative system in Ukraine;
  • Ukrainian culture is an integral part of who we are as a Canadian nation, and owing to over 130 years of history of immigration, Ukrainian influence is deeply interwoven into our Canadian social fabric; and
  • Canada is a host to the third largest ethnic population of Ukrainians globally, and there are thousands of people (family, friends, and strangers) who are ready to welcome Ukrainians in their homes, and grant them safety from this senseless and brutal conflict.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to grant all Ukrainian citizens a visa-free entry to Canada and provide refugee assistance to all Ukrainians fleeing the war zone, and that this action take effect immediately, while Ukraine is still a free and independent nation, and its citizens still have the choice to leave.
