Home stays are a powerful and direct way to welcome Ukrainian newcomers. By doing airport pick-up, making grocery runs, sharing a meal, giving advice on day-to-day decisions like schools, sports, and more – you can help a new neighbour build a new life in your community.
Manitoba has long been a beacon of hope and place of refuge. Over 140,000 Ukrainians, displaced by war, have applied under the Canadian Ukrainian Authorization Emergency Travel (CUAET) visa since the announcement was made by the Government of Canada on March 17, 2022. Now, Manitobans are taking on a historic task offering thousands of Ukrainians a new chance to rebuild their lives here.
The planes are starting to land. Ukrainians need our help. We are asking Manitobans to rise to the movement and mobilize to resettle Ukrainians. We invite you to join a national effort and become a host, today!
