“It is exciting to kick off the XXIII Congress of Ukrainian Canadians here in Edmonton. The organizing committee led by Daria Luciw, has done an excellent job.
We have just heard an inspiring opening keynote speech by Dr. Olenka Bilash on Ukrainian language culture and identity.
We have almost 300 delegates registered for the XXIII Congress. The most in recent history.
We have some excellent speakers on a wide variety of topics. Best wishes on a successful Congress.”
