Most Ukrainian peasants, however, sought to obtain a land plot for agricultural cultivation – Homewood (a land plot that was provided from state land funds on preferential terms in the US and Canada to those who wanted to farm).
The mass emigration of the Western Ukrainian peasantry began in the 80’s. XIX century, and the largest size reached in the beginning of XX century.
At the end of the XIX century. The Ukrainian immigrant community of Canada was not much smaller than the number. The vast majority were Halych and Bukovina Ukrainians. They settled in desert places in western Canada, where they received homework. Having received their own economy, the neighbors on homestead built their homes, formed settlements with the church, school, post office. So there were Ukrainian villages. Like Ukrainian settlers in the United States, their fellow countrymen in Canada have also called one of their first villages Ukraine.
