Almost all of these immigrants settled in Edna, Alberta, which was renamed Star, and began the oldest Ukrainian colony in Canada. Ukrainian Settlements in Manitoba Manitoba, especially its capital city Winnipeg, will always have great historical significance in the settlement of Ukrainians in Canada.
Some immigrants had taken part in unsuccessful wars for Ukrainian ndependence during 1917 to 1922, and brought with them a strong sense of nationalism and an old-country orientation, These attitudes complicated the emerging views of the first immigration which were becoming more and more orientated towards Canadian problems. Statistics indicate that from the time of the accepted date of formal Ukrainian immigration in 1891 to the First World War in 1914, between 100 to 170 thousand Ukrainian immigrants arrived in Canada.
Wasyl El eniak, one of the first Ukrainian settlers to make Canada his home, was born on 22 December 1859 at Nebyliv, district Kalush in Western Ukraine. Subsequent transports provided a continuous influx of immigrants to established communities, and also formed new communities in the northern areas as already mentioned. Thus in 1901, a congregation was established at St. Norbert established in 1906, Elma in 1909-1912 and Hadashville in 1911.
This was to the benefit of both. On the other hand, engineering an astonishing decline from Film and the Ukrainians in Canada. However, between 1926 and 1929 approximately 50 thousand Ukrainians immigrated to Canada with an additional 16 thousand in 1939.
This development made wheat growing in Manitoba and the prairie provinces possible. In 1891, the year of the first wave of settlement, there were 4,833,000 souls in Canada and 152,506 in ,Manitoba. The second: How well, if at all, do the new immigrants integrate into Toronto's Ukrainian community? Contributing factors were two booklets written by Joseph Oleskiv, "About Free Lands" and "About Emigration", which redirected the emigration thrust from Brazil called the "Brazilian fever", where Film and the Ukrainians in Canada people were sorely manipulated by unscrupulous agents and suffered greatly in a climate to which they found difficulty adapting.
Joseph Oleskow, an agriculturist from Galicia, had visited Western Canada and had personally confirmed that homesteading could be successfully carried on. Nearness to each other gave them security in a strange land and Canada's democratic ways provided an opportunity to use their language and practise their old-country traditions without hindrance from their non-Ukrainian neighbours. The vast expanses between the Great Lakes and the Rocky Mountains remained undeveloped and reserved mainly for hunting and trapping of wild animals.

To the oldest communities belongs Goner where the church dates back to 1899, followed by the Beausejour area with the church at Ladywood built in 1903, Brokenhead in 1904 and then Thalberg in 1913 and six others witch presently belong to this area of parish communities.
