September 2, 2021. OTTAWA, ON. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) encourages all members of our community and all Canadians to vote and get involved in the upcoming federal election. Election Day is September 20, but there are several ways that Canadians can vote before election day as well.
“With the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, some rules and procedures have been updated to ensure that we can all vote and participate in the 2021 elections safely,” stated UCC National President Alexandra Chyczij. “The UCC is sharing these materials from Elections Canada, in English, Ukrainian and French, to ensure that our community is well-informed about how to make their voice heard in the election.”
