6 awesome Ukrainian businesses located in Metro Vancouver

Mar 1 2022, 8:08 pm

Canada has the world’s third-largest Ukrainian population, and there are many Ukrainian businesses right here in Vancouver that you can support.

There doesn’t seem to be any end in sight for the conflict in eastern Europe, but there are many ways you can support the Ukrainian community outside of donating your money to humanitarian aid organizations.

From studios celebrating traditional Ukrainian dance to restaurants serving delicious vegetarian cabbage rolls, these are some Vancouver-based Ukrainian businesses and organizations you can support.

Kvitka Ukrainian Dance Studio

Kvitka Dance Studio has been around since the late ’80s.

Based in Surrey, Kvitka promises a fun, cultural experience through dance.

It offers classes for children and adults.

Ukrainian Community Society of Ivan Franko

Community is important, and it’s especially true if you’ve arrived in Canada from another country. Having a place to go that reminds you of home, or even wanting to learn about your roots more can be an enlightening experience.

The Richmond-based Ivan Franko society provides this to the Ukrainian community. Through festive community events like Friday night family suppers, it’s able to engage with the Ukrainian community but is open to all.

The community is always looking for volunteers, and you don’t have to be Ukrainian to help out.

Where: 5311 Francis Road, Richmond

Kozak Ukrainian Eatery

Serving much of the Lower Mainland, Kozak Ukrainian Eatery has everything you’d want in a Ukrainian feast.

From Ukrainian sourdough bread to bright and flavourful borscht soup or plump perogies, all handmade and all delicious. There are even vegan cabbage rolls.
