Who we are

The aims of the Calgary Collection, UMC, is the preservation, promotion and an appreciation of our Canadian-Ukrainian heritage.

It was formed by the women of the Olha Basarabova Branch, Ukrainian Woman’s Association of St. Vladimir’s Sobor in 1976.  Its collection features embroideries, kylyms, costuming, folk-art and a large collection of pysanky.  Our artifacts show the early pioneer life in Canada as well as contemporary works.
