Past Events

February 24th marks one year since the full-scale russian aggression against Ukraine. The UCC organized a nation-wide candle-lit vigil to recognize 365 days of Ukraine’s resistance, to commemorate fallen soldiers and tens of thousands of civilians who died in the war.

The snow and cold did not prevent Ukrainians and friends of Ukraine from gathering together in Halifax to mark the year of the full-scale, genocidal war of russia against Ukraine. We thank everyone who showed up and sent messages of strong support to Ukrainians defending their land: Mayor Mike Savage, Minister Barbara Adams, MLA Zach Churchill, MLA John MacDonald, MP Andy Fillmore, MP Lena Metlege-Diab, MP Darren Fischer, and US Consul General Lyra Carr.

Unite Against Tyrannies Rally November 19, 2022.

Hundreds of people came to the Peace and Friendship park to protest against the oppressive regimes in russia and Iran which target people of Ukraine and Iran. They chanted “All together we will win! All together we will win!” This was also a message for the delegates of the international security forum taking place in Halifax. Representatives of the local Ukrainian and Iranian communities, the members of the provincial and federal government, and forum delegates who took the stage highlighted the importance of international efforts in standing united against tyrannies and supporting the ongoing fight for freedom of Ukrainian and Iranian people.

Support Rally for Ukraine

On October 15th, Ukrainians of Halifax protested the recent barbaric attacks by the terrorist russian state on Ukrainian cities. The attacks caused multiple deaths, injuries, and damage to the civil infrastructure. The protesters held photos of destruction in Zaporizhzhia and Kyiv and their message was clear — russia is using terror against Ukrainian civilians as one of its war tactics. While the Ukrainian community will always come together to show our position and support, we need a much stronger reaction from the Canadian government as well. The Nova Scotia branch of Ukrainian-Canadian Congress joins our voices with the protesters and urges the Canadian Parliament to recognize russia is a state sponsor of terrorism.

Independence Day Proclamation, Halifax, August 24, 2022

On August 24, Ukraine’s modern independent state is turning 31. It is also a day with a grim milestone — 6 months of russian genocidal war against Ukraine. UCC NS Branch will mark this day in Halifax by proudly raising Ukrainian flag with @Mayor Mike Savage and gathering together as the community to celebrate the resistance and bravery of the Ukrainian people.
Nova Scotians, let’s show our solidarity with Ukraine by flying its flag on our homes and businesses on August 24.

Glory to Ukraine!

SALUTE TO UKRAINE — rain or shine!

SALUTE TO UKRAINE, a fundraiser to support Ukraine, was planned to be held during the final day of The Royal International Tattoo Festival on July 2 at the Grand Parade. Unfortunately, the festival got cancelled 2 hours before the start due to the weather forecast. However, it didn’t stop the team of Ukrainian volunteers to proceed with their fundraiser. Musicians from Balaklava Blues gave a short live performance to the cheers of the small crowd. Delicious traditional pies and cookies were popular! Besides baked goods, we also sold quite a few t-shirts with awesome and inspiring designs by Andriy Yermolenko. Next day, thanks to the organizers of the Harbourside Ribfest, we were able to set up a booth at Alderney Landing on July 3rd. Thank you, Chris and Ashley! In two days we collected $8,000 dollars that will be sent to the Medical Batallion Hospitallers, a volunteer organization of paramedics that works directly on the front lines since 2014. Thank you everyone for your support!
