The first block Ukrainian settlement in Saskatchewan was established in 1897 when 150 families arrived in the Canora district from western Ukraine. Ottawa had specified that earlier Ukrainian immigrants first settle in Alberta and Manitoba. Canora became a center where the Ukrainian culture and language are still kept alive. Thus many people know Canora as a Ukrainian town. The distinctive domes on many of the churches in the area are a lasting feature of this settlement.
