Whether you’re getting your family here or looking to support others there are crucial roles for you to play.
We welcome stories of your own immigration to Canada – they help inform us on the challenges for newcomers.
Many of you are going through a lot right now and so while on one hand we want to ask you for as little as possible it’s also clear that Ukrainians are tough as nails and probably won’t let us get away with that.
Ukrainian brand new to Canada will face many of the challenges you did. They may also be traumatized by the war, worried about those they left behind, and unsure about their future. Our communities can help with many of these things but as you can imagine another Ukrainian or Russian speaker may be essential at times.
We encourage you to be in touch with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.. at this point they appear to be doing the most organizing of volunteers for this crisis.
