The Ukrainian Canadian Congress wishes you and your loved ones a wonderful Canada Day celebration! A land of liberty, peace and hope, generations of Canadians can be proud of the country that they have built and the unity that binds us from coast to coast to coast.
Canada Day is an opportunity to celebrate Canada’s identity and to mark our rich culture. It is a day that brings Canadians together with their families, friends and communities in celebrations across the country.
As Ukrainian Canadians, we celebrate the contributions that our community has made to the mosaic of Canadian life. For over 125 years, we have remembered our traditions, language and culture while giving back to the land we have made our home.
Today is a day of celebration. But it is also a day to remember. Many thousands of Canadians gave their lives so that we may live in freedom and in peace. In the hardships and turmoil of so many wars through the decades, they served Canada with valour and courage. We shall never forget their sacrifice.
