The Ukrainian Canadian Professional and Business Association of Toronto (UCPBA) was established in 1935 and is an integral part of Toronto’s vibrant Ukrainian community. The UCPBA of Toronto exists as a link between Canadian-Ukrainian Professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners and community leaders in Toronto.

Our objectives are to foster the growth and development of the Ukrainian Canadian professional and business community by:

    • promoting and advancing interests of the Ukrainian Canadian community in Toronto;
    • recognizing the achievements and contributions of Ukrainians in Canada;
    • contributing to Canadian society by promoting good corporate citizenship and principles of volunteerism among its members;
    • upholding and promoting Ukrainian Canadian culture and education;
    • facilitating and promoting relationships with Ukraine; and
    • supporting Ukrainian Canadian student involvement in post-secondary education.

Since its inception, the association has raised thousands of dollars in charitable donations towards significant projects and worthy causes. For example, the UCPBA of Toronto co-established the Canadian Foundation of Ukrainian Studies and the Chair of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Toronto.
