The purpose of the Ukrainian Museum of Canada is to acquire, preserve, study and interpret, on a national basis, representative artifacts which depict the Ukrainian heritage and its contribution to Canada.

The Ukrainian Museum of Canada has been building the library, archival and artifact collections since the 1930s. The UMA collection includes Ukrainian schoolbooks, records from some prominent Ukrainian Canadians, and extensive textiles, as well as numerous other items. UMA collections in the four regions of Canada supplement the already vast collection.

UMA is a registered charity actively involved in promoting ethnographic arts and history locally, provincially and nationally. UMA is are governed by a Board and under the authority of the Ukrainian Women’s Association of Canada (UWAC).

The Ukrainian Museum of Canada overlooks the South Saskatchewan river and is within Saskatoon’s vibrant downtown. In the summer, the riverbank is the center of many different heritage, arts and cultural events.

Besides the National Centre of the Ukrainian Museum of Canada, UMA consists of four regional Museums (Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Vancouver) , and one Collection in Calgary.

The Ukrainian Museum of Canada also has a Gift Shop!
