The Ukrainian Community Society of Ivan Franko is a registered charitable non-profit society dedicated to preserving and sharing the Ukrainian culture within the Canadian Mosaic.
It is the members who are generous with their time as volunteers that allow events and good works to continue. Friday Night Family Suppers, Pysanky (traditional Ukrainian Easter-egg) Workshops, the Lending Library and Book Club, as well as Ukrainian Dances, Malanka, and other celebrations are all part of the fabric of a successful Ukrainian community group.
The society proudly sponsors the Tropak Ukrainian Dance Ensemble, an over -16 dance group that performs locally and across North America. Tropak invites male and female dancers, age 16 and over with some dance experience (no Ukrainian dance experience is required) to join them for practices and performances.
