ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On 5 April 2022, the government of Canada introduced the Regulations Amending the Special Economic Measures (Belarus) Regulations (SOR/2022-075), banning the exports of the goods and technologies included in the "Restricted Goods and Technologies List" to Belarus or any person in Belarus.
In the same announcement, the government also imposed sanctions on 9 Belarusian individuals and restricted the provision of insurance and reinsurance services to the Belarusian aviation and aerospace industry (see related intervention).
In this context, Melanie Joly, Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs, said: "By enabling Vladimir Putin’s senseless invasion of Ukraine, these close collaborators of the regime are complicit in the horrific events unfolding before our eyes. Canada continues to stand with the brave people of Ukraine fighting for their freedom, and we will not stop pressuring the Russian regime until its troops have left Ukrainian soil. The atrocities must end".
The measure is part of the several rounds of sanctions introduced by Canada against Belarus and Russia (see related state acts).
