Database of Ukrainian Immigrants in Canada

Library Archives Canada has launched a new database of Ukrainian Immigrants 1891-1930.

Ukrainian Church in Insinger, Saskatchewan
(We passed this church on our trip across Canada)

They report that the first two Ukrainians arrived in Canada in 1891, followed by tens of thousands. They mostly settled in western Canada... Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The next groups arrived after WWI.

You can check for your Ukrainian ancestors in their database here.
