Ukrainian Business Celebration in Canada
This event will be not just another community banquet, festival, or business event but a unique community celebration of the successes and achievements of Ukrainian-Canadian businesses and professionals, and also of their proud commitment and dedication as active members of the greater Ukrainian community which they serve!
How often have we heard the usual replies from those who say this event is not for them; “I don’t wish to participate in this event… I have enough clients to service”, or “I am not interested in working with Ukrainians”, or “I don’t have the budget for advertising or marketing….I build my business through other means” etc. Really…let’s be sensible! Our participants who regularly support this annual event clearly respect their connection to the Ukrainian professional and business community, and understand how their clientele also includes the Ukrainian Canadian community at large.
Let’s all join together this year on April 2 at the Payal Convention Centre in Mississauga for this 4th annual celebration of Toronto’s Ukrainian-Canadian business & professional community. New for 2017 are: “Master Class” seminars on various topics of interest to the public, a children’s corner, and a Ukrainian ‘Korchma’ Eatery with traditional food and drink, as well as the usual Ukrainian Canadian business & professional Trade Show 2017. Let’s also welcome our guest entrepreneurs from Ukraine who this year will participate in our new “Made in Ukraine” focus area!
At this year’s event, the 2nd edition of the Ukrainian business directory UkrPages.directory 2017 will also be officially released. This directory is a work-in-progress as more and more businesses and services are added from the Ukrainian community and this project develops into something more comparable with other ethnic community directories (Polish, Russian, Italian, etc). Please do your part in supporting this directory by registering your free business or service listing at: ukrpages.directory Spread the word and let others know about this unique community business project as we grow and make UkrPages.directory larger and more comprehensive for 2018!
As we celebrate the the 125th anniversary of the arrival of the first Ukrainians to Canada, let us honour those like Ivan Pylypiw who became the very first Ukrainian ‘entrepreneurs’ and land owners, establishing and growing their very own farm businesses in their new home Canada!
Today, the unending list of successful and famous Ukrainian Canadian businesses and professionals continues, many of whom you will have the chance to meet at this year’s event on April 2, including those many new Ukrainian entrepreneurs who together will grow and strengthen our Ukrainian business and professional community!!
