Who we are?

We are a proactive volunteer group that has been actively supporting Ukrainians in the fight for Ukraine’s independence since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.

Our main activity is to help newly arrived Ukrainians who have suffered as a result of the aggression of the Russian Federation to adapt in a new country.

We participate in and organize events to support Ukrainians and their adaptation to life in Canada.
On the Independence Day of Ukraine, together with the Canadian Congress of Ukrainians - Niagara branch, they organized a charity event to unite Ukrainians in the Niagara region.

We offer support to Ukrainian families

Our priority is help in finding housing and work.

In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Canada announced a series of measures to provide services to allow Ukrainians displaced by the war to settle in Canada, and federal, provincial and regional governments and non-governmental organizations are working together to receive them and provide comprehensive assistance.

Our NSU team is here to help you through the process. We provide assistance from the moment you arrive and after you settle in.

With the help of various programs supporting our lives, Ukrainian families adapt to Canada. All services are FREE for CUAET newcomers.
