Premier Doug Ford wants to fast-track potential Ukrainian refugees to Ontario, where he says jobs and settlement services will be waiting for them.

Ford said Friday he’s discussing with Ottawa how his province can help resettle people who are fleeing the Russian invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.

“We need to speed things up, expedite people fleeing the tyranny that Russia has put on Ukraine,” Ford said in London, Ont.

“I’m going to be speaking to the federal government over the weekend and hopefully this afternoon to see what Ontario can do to speed the process up.”

Canada has already promised to prioritize immigration applications from Ukraine. On Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the creation of a new hotline for people with immigration questions related to Ukraine.
