Approximately eight graduate students and early career scholars will be selected to discuss their work and exchange ideas in a workshop facilitated by professors Andrea Graziosi, University of Naples, and Olga Andriewsky, Trent University, with the participation of other senior scholars. Each session will be devoted to discussion of one paper. The workshop will be conducted in English. Room and board and travel expenses will be covered by HREC.

HREC invites proposals from graduate students and early career scholars (i.e., those who have completed their doctoral degrees within the past five years) in relevant academic disciplines, including history, comparative genocide studies, literature, anthropology, cultural studies, psychology, demography, sociology, and law. Awards will be granted on a competitive basis.

Welcome to UCC-Toronto!

 The mandate of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Toronto Branch is to:

COORDINATE AND REPRESENT THE UKRAINIAN CANADIAN COMMUNITY IN TORONTO

We believe this website helps us deliver against this goal by providing you with a window on our organization and the community we serve.

We continue to build our future on the basis of a very solid foundation developed and implemented by generations of Ukrainian Canadians before us.  The Congress has been serving the community for more than half a century and we continue to do so in an effective and inclusive manner.  We fulfill our mandate by coordinating and leading key community celebrations, such as Ukraine’s Independence Day (in August), Remembrance Day (in November), Ukraine's Reunification Day (in January), and all major community and historic milestones that have a significant impact on our community.

We foster a community environment based on equality, justice, tolerance, inclusiveness, and respect by working with member organizations and community members to enable them to establish their respective roles within the community.  We also help foster the ”special relationship” that Canada shares with Ukraine and ensure that new Canadians are welcomed into the community.

In addition, we work closely with the National Executive of the UCC in effectively representing the Community before the government and media on a variety of topics of concern, for example Immigration, Justice, and Multiculturalism.

The Congress can be characterized as having an effective, team-based, and professional management team, led by a broad spectrum of young leaders and core group of seasoned veterans dedicated to the further growth and prosperity of their community. 

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the many Board Members, volunteers, and supporters who contribute so much of their time and effort in executing a truly ambitious program on behalf of the entire community.  We are proud to be part of such a dedicated team and, as always, we look to your continued support.
