CYMK-Ukrainian Orthodox Youth is an organization that connects Ukrainian Orthodox youth from all over Canada. Not only do we try to keep our faith ever-present, but we also focus on creating strong community leaders and bringing the Ukrainian-Canadian diaspora closer to Ukraine.
CYMK was formed in 1931 and is the coordinating body of youth groups in the Ukrainian Orthodox (UOCC) parishes across Canada. CYMK-UOY is also a proud member organization of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC)
Ukrainian Women's Association of Canada
The Ukrainian Women's Association of Canada was founded in 1926 in Saskatoon, Sask. The Association works diligently to preserve, develop and nurture the Ukrainian cultural heritage and traditions as a distinctive contribution to the national culture of Canada. It also works in partnership with other women's organizations and the community to address current societal issues and focuses on the education of the youth.
The U.W.A.C. is an integral component of the Ukrainian Self-Reliance League of Canada and is affiliated with the National Council of Women, the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and the World Congress of Ukrainians. Branches of the Association are located within the structure of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church parishes and in addition to their cultural and educational activities serve the needs of the Church as outlined in the Constitution.
