Canada Celebrates Vyshyvanka Day 2017

Ukrainian Canadian Congress (Ottawa) – May 19, 2017

Yesterday, we gathered with leaders from all political parties from across the country! During Question Period, over 50 Members of Parliament adorned vyshyvanky in the House of Commons.

Parlament, Ottawa – May 18, 2017

By wearing their vyshyvanky, parliamentarians showcased Ukrainian culture, paying homage to the contributions Ukrainian immigrants made to the settling and building of a multicultural Canada, and also demonstrated solidarity with Ukraine during these challenging times.
