This year’s Canada150 Day Parade was the biggest and most multicultural of all! In total, there were 63 entries including magnificent, colourful, dancing and singing Ukrainian Delegation. We are proud to have had the youngest kids and the most honoured members of Ukrainian diaspora participate in this event.
