On Tuesday September 7th Lamont County has the unique distinction of being “the cradle of Ukrainian settlement in Canada.” To commemorate the bravery, sacrifice, and contribution that Ukrainians have made in Canada, Lamont County has embarked on a twinning initiative with the Perehinske Community Village. The Perehinske Community Village from which early settlers came, triggered the first of five waves of Ukrainian immigration.
