    Marco Mendicino, Canada’s minister of immigration, refugees and citizenship, is set to announce support for families of Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752, which was shot down minutes after takeoff near Tehran in January 2020, and the Ethiopian Airlines crash in March 2019 that was the result of problems with the Boeing 737 Max aircraft.

    All 176 people on board Flight PS752 — including 55 Canadian citizens — were killed on Jan. 8, 2020, after Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard mistakenly downed the Ukrainian jetliner with two surface-to-air missiles.

    In March 2019, 157 people were killed — including 18 Canadians, when Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 plunged into a field in the African country. It was later revealed problems with the plane’s automated system, which kicks in if sensors indicate that a plane is about to lose lift, had caused the plane to crash.
