A course on this Soviet crime will be included in Canada’s Grade 10 history curriculum beginning in September 2025.
This is important news for the Ukrainian community in Canada, which has worked for years to raise global awareness of Joseph Stalin’s brutal campaign against Ukrainian identity.
In 2014, the Canada-Ukraine Foundation launched the National Holodomor Awareness Tour to educate Canadians about the Holodomor. This project helped Canadians learn more about the genocide, propaganda, and man-made famine perpetrated by the Soviet government in Ukraine. More than 70,000 people across Canada and students from more than 500 Canadian schools have heard lectures about the Holodomor in the mobile classroom.
The National Holodomor Information Tour has become an important communication and advocacy project that helped the government decide on the need to study this tragedy in schools.
The Government of Ontario also invested $400,000 to support the National Holodomor Awareness Tour and the mobile classroom on the Holodomor.
The news about this was published in more than 30 publications in Canada and Ukraine, and was also broadcast during the National Telethon on the 1+1 TV channel.
