Dedicated to advancing knowledge among Canadians and the world community about historic and contemporary civil liberties issues affecting Ukrainian Canadians.



Supporting educational and commemorative projects and student learning about Ukrainian and Ukrainian Canadian issues, UCCLF strives to encourage the study of important themes such as Canada's first national internment operations, the Great Famine of 1932-33 in Soviet Ukraine (the Holodomor), and honouring those Ukrainian Canadians who volunteered for service with the Canadian armed forces in times of war and peace, including Corporal Filip Konowal, VC,  and Ukraine's place in Europe.

Providing grants in support of the publication of educational materials, organizing student and teacher symposia and encouraging archival research, film-making and the preparation of finding aids and documentary collections on Ukrainian and Ukrainian-Canadian themes, UCCLF has played a leading role in making such materials available to students, educators, parents and the general public, as well as awarding scholarships and grants for students from the high school to post-graduate level.

Working with other groups, the UCCLF has also placed historical markers, statues and plaques across Canada and internationally, recalling historical events such as the internment operations and Holodomor as well as individuals including Corporal Filip Konowal, VC; the Welsh journalist, Gareth Jones; and Dr. Raphael Lemkin, the "father of the UN Genocide Convention."
