Visit our New Website


The Shkola website is part of a wider networking project undertaken at the initiative of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress National Headquarters in 2005. The mandate of this project is to facilitate communication between Canadian Ukrainian community schools in order to enable sharing of resources and information. The first phase of this project includes this website, as well as meetings with teachers in four cities: Toronto, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary. Later phases will focus on further development of this site, in particular its resource database, as well as meetings with teachers in other centres.


The mandate of the National School Council (Rada) is to facilitate communication between Ukrainian language schools in order to enable sharing of resources and information and to continue the work of the networking project undertaken at the initiative of the UCC. The Rada will continue, through a national advisory council of educators to:

  1. Continue to enhance the website by maintaining the database of Ukrainian bilingual, heritage and Saturday schools and teachers in Canada, teaching resources, etc;
  2. Create public awareness of Ukrainian schools in Canada and promote enrolment in them;
  3. Continue the dialogue with teachers in these Ukrainian schools to encourage exchange of ideas, teaching plans and assignments, curricula, resources, development of new courses and programs and innovation in teaching, etc.
