We have received numerous phone calls and emails from concerned Canadians asking what they can do about the humanitarian crisis precipitated by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

For immigration matters, please visit the Government of Canada website.

The Ukrainian Canadian Congress has additional information on its website at www.ucc.ca.

For those looking to help:

The Canada Ukraine Foundation, in partnership with Ukrainian Canadian Congress, has an established presence in Ukraine, and is already delivering aid to the country. Donations to the Canada Ukraine Foundation can be made securely online following this link: www.cufoundation.ca

The Ed Stelmach Community Foundation will be financially supporting at least two other initiatives, and for this we are accepting donations. Initially, we are helping to cover the cost of shipping various humanitarian supplies and equipment to Ukraine. Secondly, as refugees from the war enter Canada, either temporarily or permanently, we will be providing financial support to aid in resettlement. If you would like to donate to the foundation for these initiatives, we accept monetary donations by cheque or e-transfer.
