On August 24, 2022, the Ministry of Immigration, Population Growth and Skills of Newfoundland and Labrador celebrated Independence Day of Ukraine. The arrival of Ukrainians in Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the province’s most recent demographic changes. Since the illegal Russian takeover began on February 24, 2022, over 600 Ukrainians have arrived in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Provincial Government has also been working with hundreds more people who wish to come to the province for safety. The Provincial Government, the Association for New Canadians, and the newly formed Ukrainian community cultural organization Ukrainian-NL have held celebration events.
