New Pathway – Ukrainian News.
On December 1, 2019, the Ukrainian Credit Union Limited officially dedicated its new branch, located in Ottawa. Over 80 members of the Ukrainian-Canadian community in Ottawa attended the ceremony, as well as Jim Watson, the Mayor of Ottawa, members of Municipal and Provincial government and representatives of the Government of Ukraine.
Founded by the Ukrainian National Federation of Canada 75 years ago, UCU maintains “Building Community” as its motto and this new facility embodies this commitment. Along with the new branch, the new building at 476 Holland Ave has commercial/retail space available for lease. It will also house a state of the art meeting space for the community, including the UNF Ottawa-Gatineau branch. The premises will thus serve not only as a place to do banking, but as a hub for community activity in the Ottawa area.
At the dedication, UCU made over $13,000 in donations to a number of local community groups including a $2,000 donation to the Ottawa Food Bank.
