Ukrainian Canadian Congress Nova Scotia Branch is run by a group of dedicated volunteers. Since russia’s unprovoked full-scale war of aggression against Ukraine launched on February 24, 2022, UCC NS has concentrated its efforts, human resources and social capital to support Ukraine and Ukrainian people. We hold regular fundraising events and donate collected money to various organizations in Ukraine that together contribute to the war effort and resistance against russia’s aggression and occupation. In addition, we collaborate with the Government of Nova Scotia and local settlement organizations (ISANS and YMCA) in welcoming war-displaced Ukrainians and helping them settle in our province. In partnership with the Government of Nova Scotia, UCC NS has been assisting Ukrainians with finding local resources, jobs, and temporary housing provided by Canadian host families.
