Canada’s Parliament Educational Forum
September 25-29 2013
Founded in 2009 by the Ukrainian National Federation of Canada (UNF) and the Ukrainian National Youth Federation of Canada (UNYF), Paul Yuzyk Institute takes its inspiration from the life’s work of Senator Paul Yuzyk (1913- 1986).
A Canadian Parliamentarian, Academic, Ukrainian Canadian Community Leader, and Founder of the UNYF, he persevered through the economic hardship and ethnic discrimination of his youth to pioneer the official recognition in 1971 of Canada as a multicultural country. The goal of PYI is to train future generations of Canadian community leaders consistent with the vision of its founders.
