About Euromaidan Canada

We formed in December 2013, as part of Ukrainian Canadian Congress branch in Toronto, and since then we have been very active in supporting our brothers and sisters in Ukraine during the latest crisis. We meet weekly to organize a number of events and initiatives.

We inspired and helped other cities to start their own Euromaidan Committees or actions (ex. Ottawa, Montreal). We even produced a Rally-organizing kit for others, based on our experiences and to help them mobilize quicker.

Our membership fluctuates over time. We are 84 members and new members are always welcome! As we grew in size, we specialized into smaller subgroups/subcommittees. We have 5 active subcommittees:

  • Website
  • Media
  • Anti-Propaganda
  • Fundraising
  • Strategy

 

WHAT WE FUNDED AND CONTINUE TO FUND:

 

  • supporting journalists and independent TV programing (like espresso and hromadske)
  • medical aid to victims of Maidan and now to soldiers in ATO regions
  • supporting Crimean Tatar TV station (ATR)
  • humanitarian aid to victims and families of victims of Maidan and now ATO
  • supplies for Maidans in East Ukraine back in winter
  • non-lethal aid to ATO forces (ex. first aid kits, vests, helmets, goggles, radios, sleeping bags)
  • moral support for Maidan and ATO forces (cards with messages of support from kids in CA)
  • housing and supplies for Maidan protesters (back in winter)
