The purpose of the Ukrainian Museum of Canada of the Ukrainian Women’s Association of Canada, Alberta Branch is to acquire, preserve, research and study representative artifacts which portray the Ukrainian heritage and its contribution to Canada. By stimulating a greater awareness of Canada’s Ukrainian cultural heritage, we strengthen knowledge of Canada’s history. To be able to fulfill this purpose requires many resources: artifact acquisitions, housing, finances, expertise and volunteers. The Museum appreciates receiving all assistance in acquiring, preserving and maintaining treasured artifacts for future generations.

Donate an Artifact
A donation to our Museum is an indication of a desire to help preserve the past in educating present and future viewers about our mission and indicates a trust in our Museum to do so. Though the Museum welcomes contributions of artifacts that are of artistic or historic merit which relate to the Ukrainian life and culture in Canada, we do not accept drop off items. A potential Donor will be asked to fill out a Donation Agreement Form once contact and discussion has been held previously with the Acquisitions Coordinator. In addition to the name, address and phone number of the donor, the agreement will ask for a description of the item, its history and the biographical information of the original owner(s). If you are interested in donating an item, please contact the museum with your name and phone number and provide an image of the item. We appreciate your trust and support.
