Ukrainian Canadians

Вітаю друзі! (Ukrainian to English: Hello friends!) I am a Ukrainian Canadian from the Prairie Provinces (but current in USA, NJ) and I want to talk about Ukrainian Canadians with you, our culture, our history etc. But please speak your mind, I don't get offended by very much so :)

Привіт Korolya! My grandmother's sister was a Ukrainian who settled in Canada too! I'm curious. Is there a big difference in the Ukrainian spoken in Canada and the Ukrainian spoken in Ukraine?

No, it's the same language but not the same people, Ukrainians in Canada are not Ukrainians in Ukraine but we speak the same language.

No, but there are more English words and less Russian words. Here is a list of Ukrainian-Canadian words.

Honestly, I can understand it fine. It's kinda cool though since you have many English words that have been "Ukrainianised" such as ais krim (ice cream), bogy (buggy) and sopa (supper)!

Oh yeah here its Wikipedia Page

We Ukrainian Canadians can be proud! We are the Cossack's descendants!
