The Ukrainian Labour Temple is the headquarters of the Winnipeg branch and the national offices of the Association of United Ukrainian Canadians, a progressive organization which offers cultural, social and educational activities. Constructed in 1918-19, it is the first and largest Ukrainian Labour Temple in Canada, built by volunteer labour and financed by donations. Built to a Neo-Classical design prepared by Robert E. Davies of Winnipeg, the Labour Temple originally contained an auditorium and balcony to seat 1,000 people, as well as classrooms, library and printshop. It was a focus for Ukrainian culture and worker and farmer political activism, and is the only surviving labour hall associated with the events of the Winnipeg General Strike. The Labour Temple holds heritage designations from all three levels of government, and has recently reopened after a significant restoration project, that also modernized some aspects of the building and made it fully accessible. Come join us for a tour, and explore all the nooks and crannies of this unique cultural space!
