Ukrainian Canadian Congress Manitoba Provincial Council
Join us as we celebrate:
125th Anniversary of Ukrainians in Canada
The Ukrainian Canadian Congress Manitoba Provincial Council (UCC-MPC) represents the Ukrainian Canadian community in Manitoba before the people and Government of the province promotes linkages with Ukraine and identifies and addresses the needs of the Ukrainian community in Canada to ensure its continued existence and development for the enhancement of Canada’s socio-cultural fabric. UCC-MPC will endeavour to foster and develop the Ukrainian community in Manitoba and promote intercultural activities, thereby promoting increased knowledge and understanding among all ethnocultural groups in Manitoba.
The Ukrainian Canadian Congress Manitoba Provincial Council is the voice of Manitoba’s Ukrainian Canadian community and brings together under one structure provincial and local Ukrainian Canadian organizations in Manitoba. UCC-MPC strives to be a proactive, united and self-sustaining body that provides a high standard of leadership in developing the destiny of Ukrainian Canadians in Manitoba.
The Ukrainian Canadian Congress Manitoba Provincial Council is mandated to act as a coordinating body for the Ukrainian community and its development in Manitoba. To fulfill this mandate, UCC-MPC may develop and promote an understanding of the Ukrainian culture by sharing our heritage with other multicultural communities; encourage the full participation of all Ukrainian communities in Manitoba and act as a channel for the expressed opinions, aspirations and needs of the Ukrainian community organizations, groups and individuals and represent them before the Manitoba government and media. UCC-MPC may also research, develop and propose policies and activities to the government which have a positive impact on the Ukrainian community in Manitoba and recognize the work of Ukrainian organizations/individuals that have made a significant contribution to the promotion and enhancement of the Ukrainian community in Manitoba.
