The Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) was established to coordinate, develop, organize and deliver assistance projects generated by Canadians and directed to Ukraine.

CUF was established as a national charitable foundation that would coordinate Canadian organizations that have projects in Ukraine as well as other projects in Canada.

In 2019, CUF has the following major projects planned for Canada and Ukraine:

  • Seventh Medical Mission to Ukraine in May 2019
  • Extension of the National Holodomor Awareness Tour for 3 more years
  • Defenders of Ukraine Rehab projects
  • ATO widows and orphans support
  • Support Zhytomyr Orphanages

We will complete these projects and others with the continued financial support of our donors.

Our Projects

The Holodomor National Awareness Tour (HNAT) continued its travels across Canada this past summer, engaging communities and schools about the Holodomor, the famine genocide of 1932 – 1933.
Canada-Ukraine Foundation’s (CUF) medical missions in Ukraine have been widely popularised by Victor Malarek on the CTV’s W5 show and since 2014, CUF has already sponsored five missions.
In July 2013, the Canada-Ukraine Foundation (CUF) was approached by Ukrainian Canadian organizations to assist in raising funds within the Ukrainian Canadian community.
