Administrative history

The Retired Ukrainian Canadian Association was organized by Harry Yakymechko, Yar Chajkiwsky, and Dmytro Prokop in 1973 and was incorporated as a society in 1976. Their goal was to carry out social, educational and literary purposes among the Ukrainian people in Alberta. The association held lectures, in English or Ukrainian, often with movie or slide presentations and also had Arts & Crafts nights on a monthly basis. They received a New Horizons grant in 1975 for a project, “Preserving Ukrainian Culture” to film the lives of Ukrainian pioneers. The result of this project is not known.
The Retired Ukrainian Canadian Association is no longer an active society, however has not been formally dissolved. It is not known when the association became inactive.
