Ukrainians in Welland

Description

Many Ukrainians who settled in Welland came from their homeland in Ukraine, in search of a better life. Some settled first in the farmlands of the Prairie Provinces, then came to seek their fortunes in Welland, where the industries flourished.
Here they kept their culture alive with many traditions such as food, music and dance as well as community organizations including The Ukrainian Cultural Centre and St. Michael's Church.
