Canada home to over 1.3 million people of Ukrainian descent


OTTAWA – To celebrate Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Day, which is observed annually in the provinces of Ontario and Alberta on September 7, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress released the informative image above, which notes the Ukrainian population of Canada’s 10 provinces and three territories. The UCC also issued a statement on the occasion of the special day, which was published for the record in the September 13 issue of this newspaper. (It should be noted that the province of Manitoba celebrates Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Day on the last Saturday of July.) The UCC has reported that it is working with Canada’s parliamentarians on the establishment of a nationwide Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Month.
