The Canadian government has received a petition calling to abolish short-term visas for Ukrainian citizens, Ukrinform reported.

“E-petition e-33, submitted by the House of Commons, came today to the government,” a statement issued by the Canadian Parliament read.

The petition to abolish visas for trips up to 90 days for Ukrainian citizens travelling to Canada was filed with the Parliament by a Canadian citizen of Ukrainian descent, Nikolai Kravets.

The government has 45 days to prepare a written response to the request.

The petition has received support from 120 MPs and senators from all four main political parties, including opposition leader Rona Ambrose.
