The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) represents the Ukrainian Canadian community before the people and Government of Canada, promotes linkages with Ukraine and identifies and addresses the needs of the Ukrainian community in Canada to ensure its continued existence and development for the enhancement of Canada’s socio-cultural fabric.
Currently there are well over 1.4 million Canadians of Ukrainian background living in Canada. Ukrainians first settled in Canada in the 1890’s and have developed strong communities in every region of Canada.
