Ground Breaking Ceremony

Construction of the new museum has begun!

History was in the making on December 9, 2010 when approximately 100 people braved the minus 29 degree Celsius weather on the site of the new Museum building - 222 Avenue M South, Saskatoon - to witness a historic event.

A bus load of children from Bishop Filevich Ukrainian Bilingual School proudly stood together and sang Otche Nash (Our Father) in Ukrainian and O Canada in three languages - English, Ukrainian and French. The community watched as the pile driller made the first hole. Read more on this story in the December 2010 Museum News newsletter.
