Event description
A remarkable chronicle of the extraordinary contributions of Ukrainian Canadians to Canada's World War II war effort.

About this Event

Over 40,000 Canadians of Ukrainian descent served in the Canadian military to fight for Canada against Nazi, Fascist and Imperial Japanese tyrannies. The Ukrainian enlistment percentage was the highest of any ethnic group outside of the British. "A Canadian War Story" is directed by award-winning Canadian Director John Paskievich.

The film is based on first person testimonials of Ukrainian Canadian soldiers and chronicles their experiences in service to Canada in World War II. Spanning continents and generations, the film recounts the remarkable Ukrainian Canadian coming of age journey from Europe to Canada and to the battlefields of Europe and Asia.

The film was made possible with a grant from the Ukrainian Canadian Veterans Fund (at the Taras Shevchenko Foundation) and produced by the Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre.

This is the Digital Premiere of the film and the very first time that it is being viewed publicly. The film will be introduced by Lieutenant General Paul Wynnyk (Ret'd) CMM MSM CD, former Vice Chief of the Defence Staff and Commander of the Canadian Army.

The film screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film's creators.
