IRCC Launches a humanitarian pathway for people affected by the conflict in Sudan

The Canadian Government has launched a new family-based humanitarian pathway for Sudanese and certain non-Sudanese Nationals affected by the conflict in Sudan so that they may permanently reunite with their family members in Canada.

The pathway opened February 27, 2024. In order to qualify, applicants must be related to a Canadian citizen or permanent resident who is living in Canada. The relationhip must be that of a child of any age, grandchild, parent, grandparent or sibling. The family member in Canada will also need to agree to support them and help them build their new life in Canada.

The Canadian citizen or permanent resident living in Canada (referred to as the "anchor") must sign a Statutory Declaration which must be notarized or commissioned by a Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths. The Statutory Declaration is called "Eligibility and Statutory Declaration Attesting to The Intention Of A Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident Of Canada (Anchor) To Support A Foreign National Affected by The Conflict in Sudan", and is also known as IMM 0208.

Since the pathway opened, our office has been assisting Canadian citizens and permanent residents who wish to support a family member enter the pathway by commissioning or notarizing this Statutory Declaration (IMM 0208). If you have questions or would like to have the Statutory Declaration (IMM 0208) notarized or commissioned, please contact our office or schedule an appointment online. Please note that you will need to bring your physical, government-issued photo ID (such as a passport or Canadian driver's licence) to our office when attending.
