Information from IRCC on Supporting Afghan Nationals

Canada has announced the resettlement of up to 20,000 vulnerable Afghan nationals to Canada.

This will be done through:

  • A special immigration program for Afghan nationals, and their families, who assisted the Government of Canada; and,
  • A special humanitarian program focused on resettling Afghan nationals who are outside of Afghanistan and who don’t have a durable solution in a third country, which will include people such as:
    • Women leaders
    • Human rights advocates
    • LGBTI individuals
    • Journalists and people who assisted Canadian journalists
    • Immediate family members of one of the above
    • Extended family members of previously resettled interpreters who assisted the Government of Canada
