The United Macedonian Diaspora is pleased to announce that Canada recognized Macedonia by its constitutional name. UMD congratulates all Canadian-Macedonians on this momentous occasion – their dedication, perseverance, and endless efforts contributed towards this positive change of Canadian policy. Macedonians started immigrating to Canada over a century ago and have helped build Canadian society in all spheres of life - social, economic, and political. Today, around 200,000 Macedonians live in Canada.

Special recognition goes to the many Canadian-Macedonians and organizations who worked passionately on this issue and held countless meetings.

In addition, United Macedonian Diaspora would like to use this opportunity to thank Macedonia’s Ambassador to Canada, Dr. Sashko Nasev for his continuous and tireless hard work to educate Canadian policymakers. Canada and Macedonia are working together to rebuild Afghanistan. Furthermore, Canada strongly supports Macedonia’s path to NATO. Presently, 120 countries recognize Macedonia by its constitutional name.
