The Ukrainian Canadian Research and Documentation Centre (UCRDC) is a community institution which collects, catalogues, and preserves material documenting the history, culture and contributions of Ukrainians throughout the world.

UCRDC produces documentary films, prepares educational materials, and sponsors lectures, conferences and exhibits on various topics related to Ukrainian issues.
