Twenty-five Ukrainian students recently arrived in Ottawa to take part in the 2009 Canadian–Ukrainian Parliamentary Program. For two months, they will represent their universities and, to a certain extent, act as official ambassadors of their home country, holding formal meetings with federal MPs, directors of government departments, leaders of various Canadian NGOs and representatives of the Ukrainian diaspora in Canada.
