The Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League of Canada (UCWLC or ЛУКЖК), in its ongoing commitment to the mission of the Church, is dedicated to providing the resources that allow its members to realize their own true vocation, and live an authentic Christian life as contributing members to the Church and society.”The Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League of Canada was organized nationally on June 14, 1944, and granted Federal Charter on September 9, 1980.

The Ukrainian Catholic Brotherhood (БУК) is the official organization of the men of the Ukrainian Catholic Church of Canada. It acts in co-operation and agreement with the Ukrainian Catholic Church of Canada. The aim of the Brotherhood is centered on the Ukrainian Catholic faith, strengthening it by supporting, enriching and developing the religious and spiritual life of the parish. Membership in the Brotherhood is the expectation and obligation of every male parishioner in parishes where Brotherhood Branches exist. The parish priest is usually the spiritual advisor for the Brotherhood.
The UCB was founded in the prairie province of Saskatchewan in Canada in 1932. A young newly arrived priest from Ukraine, Rev. Dr. Stephan Semchuk became its ideologist. He was able to convince a small group of teachers and active farmers and got them involved in the life of the Church in accordance with the Catholic Lay Movement.
