Ukraine’s Independence Day: Flag Raising at Grand Parade

THURSDAY, AUGUST 24, 2023 at 8:30am

On August 24, the Ukrainian Canadian community of Halifax and HRM Mayor Mike Savage marked Ukraine’s Independence Day by raising Ukraine’s flag on Grande Parade. The event was attended by representatives of all levels of Canadian Government and international dignitaries who delivered their remarks to show solidarity with the people who have been fighting for their statehood and independence against genocidal Russian war and occupation. We thank Mayor Mike Savage, Minister Jill Balser, Hon. Zack Churchill, Senator Stan Kutcher, MP Lena Metlege Diab, MP Andy Fillmore, Hon. Kelly Regan, Estonian Honorary Consul Mr. John Olaf Soosaar, and the US Consul General Lyra Carr for their support.

Your donation will be used for ongoing fundraising efforts. We organize multiple events, some of which have small upfront costs (example: printing t-shirts for a fundraiser). After that, all collected funds are donated to the selected charity or organization in Ukraine. Such practice will continue as long as Ukrainian people require war relief support. The Board of Directors, the Executive committee, active members and supporters who work on the projects of the organization, are all volunteers.
