A petition on the introduction of a visa-free regime for short trips of Ukrainians to Canada obtained the required number of votes, and soon it will be reviewed by the federal parliament. This petition was supported by nearly five times more people than was necessary for its transfer to parliament, writes Ukrinform.

It is stated that after the document is registered in the session hall, the government will have 45 days to prepare a written response.

According to him, next week the document will be submitted for reviewing by the parliament, so until the end of June an official answer can be expected.
