Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Day

September 7, 2020. OTTAWA, ON. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) extends warm greetings to all Canadians on the occasion of Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Day. Вітаємо! 

On September 7 every year, Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Day is officially celebrated in Ontario and Alberta. On the last Saturday of July, Manitoba celebrates Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Day. 

For over 125 years, Ukrainians have called Canada home - and have made indelible and enduring contributions to the cultural, political, social and economic life of our country - enriching the mosaic of our society. 

"Canada is home to over 1.3 million Canadians of Ukrainian descent. Here, we have found freedom and fostered our language and traditions," stated Alexandra Chyczij, National President of the UCC. "On behalf of the UCC, I wish all Canadians a happy Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Day! Многая Літа!" 

The UCC is working with Canada's parliamentarians on the establishment of a Ukrainian Canadian Heritage Month. Surveyed by the UCC ahead of the 2019 Federal Election, Canada's national political parties supported the adoption of legislation designating September as Ukrainian Canadian Cultural Heritage Month.

The Government of Canada has launched the COVID Alert app last week.

The app is supposed to inform its users whether their phone has been close to the person, who has later tested positive for the Covid-19 and shared such data.

The app promises to avoid collecting and storing personal data and instead operating based on phone locations as relative to each other only.
