  • Counseling and Legal Assistance: UCSS connects individuals to Ukrainian-speaking professionals, including counselors and lawyers, for personalized support.
  • Translation Services: They offer essential translation services for documents critical to the integration process, such as certificates and licenses.
  • Children’s Support: The organization actively supports children through electronic device distribution, children’s camps, and other programs.
  • Community Integration: UCSS plays a pivotal role in integrating newcomers into the community, providing vital information on immigration and government procedures.

The Gift of Compassion: UCSS’s Impact

The Ukrainian Canadian Social Services (UCSS) in Edmonton serves as a vital support system, assisting over 500 individuals. They facilitate integration and well-being through a range of services that cater to basic needs and community connections. These efforts play a crucial role in enabling newcomers to effectively adapt to their new environment.
