Oldest Ukrainian Church in Canada

Old St. Michael’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church and Cemetery

St Micheal’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church is the oldest surviving Ukrainian Church built in Canada.

Located along Provincial Road 209, it was established in 1899 by immigrants from western Ukraine. The church was in use until 1935 when a new church with the same name was built in Gardenton, Manitoba.

Currently the church is surrounded by grass and oak trees with the no settlements immediately around it. The church faces west and the sunset can be viewed from the church doorway.

The furniture decorating the church, including the tables, wooden benches and scripture stands, were all hand carved.

St Micheal’s Ukrainian Orthodox Church was given historical status by the Province of Manitoba in 1986.
