Financial Support

Financial assistance is available to help Ukrainians arriving in Saskatchewan. 

1. Income Support

Displaced Ukrainians arriving through the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET), may be eligible for the Saskatchewan Income Support (SIS) or Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) programs.

To help with the cost of raising children under 18 years of age, families are now eligible for additional income support benefits, the Child Basic Benefit under the Saskatchewan Income Support (SIS) program and the Transitional Benefit for Children under the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability (SAID) program, until they qualify for the federal Canada Child Benefit (CCB)

Applications for SIS can be made by visiting the nearest Ministry of Social Services office or calling 1-866-221-5200. Applications for SAID can be made by visiting the nearest Ministry of Social Services office or calling 1-888-567-7243.


2. Financial Assistance for Ukrainians Arriving in Canada

The Government of Canada has announced new financial assistance for Ukrainians arriving in Canada. These funds will help Ukrainian nationals and their family members meet their basic needs – such as transportation and longer-term housing – as they arrive in communities across Canada and find a job. The benefit will consist of a direct, one-time payment of $3,000 per adult and $1,500 per child (17 years and under). Ukrainians and their family members who are in Canada with a valid work permit, study permit, temporary resident permit or visitor record under the CUAET will all be eligible to receive this one-time payment.

Applications for the assistance must be submitted through the Government of Canada's online portal. For more information and eligibility requirements for this one-time financial assistance please visit the Government of Canada's Ukraine Immigration Measures: Financial Assistance webpage. Payments are made through direct deposit, so it's important to open a Canadian bank account before completing this application.
