Ukrainians in Canada


Ukrainian immigration to Canada can be traced back to the late 19th century, with the first recorded cases dating to the late 1800s. These early immigrants, primarily peasants seeking better economic opportunities, settled in the Canadian prairies, particularly in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, where they established vibrant Ukrainian communities.

The Ukrainian community in Canada has grown significantly over the years. According to historical records, the Ukrainian population reached its peak during the early to mid-20th century, with hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians immigrating to Canada in search of a better life. Today, Ukrainians constitute one of the largest ethnic groups in Canada, contributing richly to the nation’s cultural tapestry.

Ukrainians have played a significant role in shaping Canada’s cultural, social, and economic landscape. From their contributions to agriculture and industry to their vibrant cultural heritage, Ukrainians have left an indelible mark on Canadian society. Their resilience, hard work, and commitment to the community have made them integral members of the Canadian fabric.

The recent Russian invasion of Ukraine has led to a surge in Ukrainian immigrants seeking refuge in Canada. In response, the Canadian government has implemented various immigration programs to assist Ukrainian refugees in resettling in Canada. Through humanitarian initiatives and support networks, Canada has extended a helping hand to those fleeing conflict and persecution in Ukraine.

The Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) is among the special measures the Government of Canada introduced to support the people of Ukraine. It provides Ukrainians and their family members with free, extended temporary status, enabling them to work, study, and reside in Canada until conditions in Ukraine become safe for their return. As of March 2024, 248,726 Ukrainians have arrived and been accommodated through this initiative.
