A Word from Us
Слово від нас
Each year, we collect information from our member organizations to learn about their organizational activities.

280 were targeted specifically to youth
115 to rural communities

With extrapolation, an estimated 11,330 individuals devoted more than 94,000 volunteer hours to these Ukrainian cultural, educational and charitable programs and activities. This is something we can all be proud of!

UCC Saskatchewan celebrates the dedication of these volunteers who are making important contributions to maintaining, developing and sharing our province’s Ukrainian Canadian identity and aspirations.
