The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) expresses its deep condolences to the family of Mr. Stefan Genyk-Berezowsky, who passed away on December 15 at the age of 77.
Mr. Genyk-Berezowsky – a community leader and activist, journalist, broadcaster and actor – was highly respected by Canada’s Ukrainian community and beyond. For many years, he brought Ukrainian news into our homes on television programs Svitohliad and ForumTV.

We will always remember Stefan Genyk-Berezowsky’s kindness, humour and generosity. He will be greatly missed. May His Memory Be Eternal. Вічная Пам’ять!”
