What does Oseredok collect?
Oseredok collects material objects that help strengthen the understanding of Ukrainians in
Canada. “Each object tells its own particular story and, collectively, all these stories
create a historic narrative about our community, its social customs, its cultural life, its
aspirations and achievements.”
We accept artefacts, art work, archival materials – such as documents, photographs,
recordings – and library materials made by, about, used, or collected by Ukrainian

What should I expect when donating to Oseredok?
The Museum Technician will ask you several questions about the history and biographical
information of your donation during your scheduled appointment. This process helps
Oseredok determine whether your donation is suitable for our collections and ensures that
its history is preserved for future generations.
All donations will be considered on the basis of relevance to our Collections Policy, the
physical condition of the donation, and whether or not we have similar items in our collection.
For this reason, Oseredok cannot accept all donations. Please understand that determining
this may take some time.
Donations to the collections will be accepted with the understanding that their ownership is
transferred to Oseredok Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre.
Oseredok may issue a Tax Receipt for your donation upon request.
