Administrative history

Following several months of negotiations between the Federal Government of Canada and the Ukrainian Canadian community, as represented by the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association (UCCLA), the Ukrainian Canadian Foundation of Taras Shevchenko (UCFTS), and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC), a $10 million endowment known as the "Canadian First World War Internment Recognition Fund" (CFWWIRF) was established to commemorate and educate Canadians about Canada's first national internment operations of 1914 to 1920.

The agreed terms of the endowment were confirmed during a signing ceremony held on May 9, 2008 at the Stanley Barracks in Toronto, Ontario. At which time, the Federal Government was represented by Hon. Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration, and Multiculturalism, and the Ukrainian Canadian community was represented by Mr. Andrew Hladyshevsky Q.C. (UCFTS), Mr. Paul Grod (UCC), and Dr. Lubomyr Luciuk (UCCLA).

The CFWWIRF is designated for the support of projects to commemorate and recognize the experiences of ethno-cultural communities affected by the First World War Internment. Only the interest earned on the $10 million is used to fulfill the objective of the Fund.
