Constructed in 1899, this church is a fine early example of Ukrainian ecclesiastical architecture in Canada. Its distinctive massing, plan and bulbous cupolas reflect the Byzantine-influenced architectural heritage of the homeland of the settlers in the region. The traditional free-standing bell tower was built in 1906, and like the church, is distinguished by the high quality of its wooden craftsmanship. Built by the first generation of Ukrainians to arrive in Canada, St. Michael's served as an affirmation of their cultural identity and remains today as Canada's oldest existing Ukrainian church.

L'?glise Ukrainienne Orthodoxe St. Michael's.Construite en 1899, cette ?glise offre un bel exemple des premiers monuments de l'architecture eccliastique ukrainienne au Canada.

Le traditionnel clocher d?tach? a ?t? ?rig? en 1906. Comme l'?glise, il se distingue par la qualit? du bois ouvrag?. Oeuvre de la premi?re g?n?ration d'Ukrainiens venus au Canada, St. Michael's servit ? affirmer leur identit? culturelle. Il s'agit de la plus vieille ?glise ukrainienne qui subsiste au Canada.
