Founded in 1944, The Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre – Oseredok – is a museum and archival heritage institution that celebrates the remarkable achievements and legacy of the Ukrainian Canadian community in Canada.
It serves as the community’s collective memory by collecting, caring for, documenting and interpreting collections of ethnology, folk art, fine art, and archives related to community history.
Oseredok prides itself on its uniqueness, which lies in pulling under one roof diverse but inter-related collections that reflect a wide range of cultural history and heritage. Oseredok is a vital source of information on Ukrainian culture, encompassing such fields of interest as history, art, music, literature, and ethnography. It is a place where the tradition inherent in the Ukrainian consciousness is preserved and transmitted to future generations.
Oseredok shares Canadian Ukrainian cultural experiences through a public program of exhibitions, workshops and courses, public lectures, presentations, and special events.
