Persons affected by the sanctions on financial transactions, whether they are applicants for a visa or already in Canada, may apply for permits from the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) that authorize specified activities or transactions that are otherwise prohibited under the sanctions.

Exemptions to the sanctions can be found in section 3.2 and 3.3 of the amended Regulations. For full texts please visit Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
