In celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation, the Ukrainian Museum of Canada, Ontario Branch’s new exhibit “Trunk Tales: Leaving home … finding home” chronicles periods of Ukrainian immigration to Canada dating back to the late 1800s.  It tells poignant stories of Ukrainian immigrants to Canada and revolves around four trunks brought over four major periods of immigration. Each trunk has its own fascinating history of hardship, loss and ultimately great hope and joy found in a new home in Canada.

To support this exhibit which will run to March 31, 2018, we proudly announce the Trunk Tales: Leaving home … finding home Lecture Series.

Admission for each lecture is $20.00 or the series of three lectures may be purchased for $50.00.

To purchase tickets in advance please call416-923-3318ext.105.
