The Holodomor National Awareness Tour is a project of the Canada-Ukraine Foundation, developed with partner organizations the Holodomor Research and Education Consortium (HREC), the Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress. The project is funded through a three-year grant of $1.5 million from the Canadian federal government and $750,000 from the Ontario provincial government as well as private donations.
