"It is time to convert our friendship and sympathy into a mutually beneficial cause. Whether it’s security, or trade, or education, we are in a genuine win-win position to work and succeed together."

Andriy Shevchenko

Ambassador, Embassy of Ukraine to Canada

"The Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement entered into force on August 1st 2017 and today, four years later we are embarking on its modernization."

Larisa Galadza

Ambassador, Embassy of Canada to Ukraine

"The relationship between Ukraine and Canada has always been warm. Canada is an attractive economic and cultural partner for Ukraine. Plenty of reasons for that, but the most important one is the level of our values unity built for years through diplomatic missions, bilateral visits, and mutual successful projects. I believe this pillar will firmly hold our friendship in many centuries to come!"

Lesia Zaburanna

Member of Parliament of Ukraine, co-head of of the Interparliamentary Group with Canada

"What we have been doing is putting bricks on the wall, but we have not tried to create a situation where that wall may not be necessary in the future, what's missing in Canadian policy is the proactive diplomatic side that could try and facilitate a solution."

Andrew Rasiulis

Fellow, Canadian Global Affairs Institute.

"Ensuring the success of existing large foreign investor’s projects is the best way to attract further foreign investments."

Matt Simpson

CEO, Black Iron

"Cooperation of Canada and Ukraine for humanitarian purposes in third countries would deepen their existing relations. Both countries have a high profile and practical experience in demining activities. They should cooperate in demining Karabakh, where the Armenian side, violating customary international humanitarian law, has refused to turn necessary maps over to the Azerbaijani side."

Robert Cutler

Fellow, Canadian Global Affairs Institute.
