SASKATCHEWAN DESIGNATES 2016 TO BE YEAR OF SASKATCHEWAN UKRAINIANS

         Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall officially proclaimed 2016 as the Year of Saskatchewan Ukrainians. The proclamation acknowledges the 125th anniversary of Ukrainian immigration to Canada while recognizing contributions that Ukrainians have made to the province. Ukrainian Canadians are an important part of Sas­katchewan's cultural diversity making up 13 per cent of its population; they proudly share their identity and culture, thereby, enriching our communities.

        UCC Saskatchewan President Mary Ann Trischuk and Vice-President Orest Gawdyda were on hand for the official proclamation at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building and presented Premier Brad Wall with a Ukrainian shirt on behalf of UCC Saskatchewan. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress - Saska­tchewan Provincial Council, Inc. sincerely thanks the Government of Saskatchewan for this special recognition.

        Events celebrating the 125th anniversary of Ukrainian immigration are being planned in the province and across the country. In the fall, Saskatchewan will be the centre of national celebrations when UCC Saskatchewan hosts the XXV Triennial Congress of Ukrainian Canadians. The theme for this gathering of Ukrainian community leaders is "Engage-Inspire-Empower." The Congress will take place in Regina from September 29 to October 2, 2016. The culmination of the weekend will be a gala concert at the Conexus Arts Centre showcasing some of Canada's top Ukrainian entertainers.
