Did you know... that Ukrainians started immigrating to Canada 130 years ago?

The first recorded Ukrainian settlers arrived in Canada in 1891, when two immigrants, Vasyl Eleniak and Ivan Pylypiw, from the Galician province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, landed in Montreal.

A year and a half later, Ivan took his family and Vasyl`s wife from the village of Nebyliv to Canada. Leaving his hometown, Ivan persuaded his fellow villagers to seek a better life overseas. 
He was later followed by other families from Nebyliv and surrounding villages, who founded the first and largest settlement of Ukrainians in Canada near Edmonton, in what is now the province of Alberta.  In the years that followed, tens of thousands of Ukrainians arrived in Canada to start a new life.
These Ukrainian pioneers created societies and public organizations, they built churches and schools. Some Ukrainians became prominent politicians and statesmen! Ukrainian immigrants tried to preserve national traditions the best they could.
We at Cobblestone have taken many people back to their ancestral villages, and created other experiences where people can connect with their past

If you want to have an authentic village experience, contact us
We also provide genealogical services, so you can travel back to the village of your ancestors, have your family’s history researched in the archives, and perhaps uncover long lost relatives!
We run an Eco-Tourism Project in Tulova, where we bring travellers from around the world, to see what village life is like, and so they can imagine what their lives might have been like, had their ancestors not moved to the "new world"!

Our mission is to connect people with their ancestral homeland 
and share Ukraine with the World.
