Government of Canada helping Canadians in Sudan

Canada has been chairing discussions on the response to the crisis with a group that includes the G7 countries, as well as with the European Union, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and representatives from the United Nations and the World Bank. The CAF remains extremely well-connected in the region and are working closely with our allies and partners. Safe extraction of Canadian citizens requires diligent planning by the CAF and close coordination with like-minded nations that are planning similar missions. We continue to urge all Canadians in Sudan to check travel.gc.ca as often as possible for updates and to sign up with the Government of Canada’s Registration of Canadians Abroad service so that we can provide direct updates. Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel and Canadian military air assets have been deployed to the region. Military planning is ongoing in a complex and dynamic security environment. The CAF is assisting with transportation efforts to the extent that conditions allow. Canadian citizens in Sudan who need emergency consular assistance can contact Global Affairs Canada’s Emergency Watch and Response Centre: April 25, 2023 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada Canada takes the safety and security of Canadians abroad very seriously.
