The purpose of the Ukrainian Museum of Canada of the Ukrainian Women’s Association of Canada is to acquire, preserve, research and study representative artifacts which portray the Ukrainian heritage and its contribution to Canada.
We are actively involved in promoting ethnographic arts and history locally, provincially, and nationally.
We offer three galleries, The Main Gallery, William Kurelek Special Collections Gallery, and our Feature Gallery.
Our Main Gallery contains an overview of immigration to Canada, featuring cultural, religious, and heritage displays and artefacts. The William Kurelek Special Collections Gallery features a series of original paintings by William Kurelek that were commissioned by the UWAC National Executive. The paintings celebrate Kurelek’s mother’s Ukrainian heritage, and the Ukrainian women pioneers. Exhibits in the Feature Gallery change regularly – three to four times per year!
The artefact and archival collection of the Ukrainian Museum of Canada is very diverse.
Irreplaceable artefacts such as clothing, linens, tools, books, photographs, documents, and many other treasures were collected from the first, second, and third waves of Ukrainian immigrants to Canada.
The library has a wide variety of book, both in Ukrainian and English. It also stores newspapers, journals, and vertical files.
Our Library is currently closed to the public, for any research inquiries please contact us.
