      Founded May 1 1949, the Canadian League for the Liberation of the Ukraine (C.L.L.U.) worked to provide material and moral support for achieving the freedom of the Ukraine from the control of the Soviet Union.

      The C.L.L.U. aimed to popularize the idea of the Ukraine's independence, and to combat Communist doctrine, ideology and activities. Additionally, it sought to foster a spirit of loyalty to Canada among its members. The C.L.L.U. had branches throughout Canada, and held provincial conferences and national conventions of its members. It published numerous titles on various issues related to its mandate.
