The government of Canada believes in humanitarian rights and facilitates those in need based on what their top priorities are; such may encompass food, temporary housing, clean water to drink, emergency medical attention, and sanitary facilities. Canada, more than any other nation, is still gravely concerned about the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, and the extent of the humanitarian crisis Palestinians in Gaza.

Introduction of Temporary Resident Program for Palestinians

Staying true to what the institute believed, IRCC introduced a temporary resident (TR) program for Palestinians in Gaza with family in Canada, and on 9th January, 2024 the Honourable Marc Miller announced the opening of the pathway. This is only eligible for the extended family members who have Canadian citizenship or Permanent Residency (PR).

With the help of family members who are Canadian citizens or permanent residents, this provision offers a temporary safe haven to Palestinians who are directly impacted by the Palestinians in Gaza conflict. In addition to their immediate family (spouse, common-law partner, dependent child, and dependent child of a dependent child), eligible family members also include a Canadian citizen or permanent resident’s sibling, child, grandchild, parent, or grandparent.

“The current state of affairs in Gaza is difficult and unstable. In light of the ongoing crisis, these new policies acknowledge the value of keeping families together and offer a humanitarian route to safety. We’ll keep a careful eye on how the situation in Palestinians in Gaza develops and adjust our approach as necessary. The Right Honorable Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Minister Marc Miller.

Flexibility on the Number of Temporary Resident Permits

Contrary to earlier suggestions, the federal government’s claimed 1,000-person ceiling on temporary resident permits for Palestinians wishing to escape Palestinians in Gaza is not a firm cap. In an interview with  CTV News Channel’s Power Play, Marc Miller said:

“It is conventional for a number of these programs to have an internal number that is established. This was one that we initially believed to be something to manage flow, understand what the numbers are, and then you know remain flexible on the fly if we do see numbers that exceed that, given that something was being done in a relatively short period of time and that it’s a war zone Palestinians in Gaza.
