This month the Foundation held its annual general meeting celebrating the completion of another successful year for our organization. This year’s achievements included a number of notable standouts, such as the continuing success of the Holodomor National Awareness Tour and educational and medical missions in Ukraine.
The Foundation also welcomed the appointment of Orest Sklierenko as it’s new President, with former President Victor Hetmanczuk receiving the Canada-Ukraine Foundation’s Award for Distinguished service in recognition of his celebrated tenure with the organization.
Regarding his posting as the new President, Orest Sklierenko had this to say:
“I am excited about my new role with the Canada Ukraine Foundation (CUF) and am honoured to help lead the organization over the next several years as President. One of my early tasks in this role is to lead the creation of a new strategic plan to ensure CUF programs and projects are relevant in today’s world, aligned to the needs of their recipients, and properly and appropriately coordinate and lead the overall diaspora efforts in helping Ukraine.”
