Abstract

The spatial residential patterns of Ukrainians in Windsor, Ontario are examined for the two census years of 1951 and 1991. In addition, comparisons are made between census Ukrainians and the three study groups of parishioners of Sts. Vladimir and Olga Ukrainian Catholic Church, parishioners of St. Vladimir Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral and non-affiliated Ukrainians. The spatial residential patterns of the Ukrainian community have evolved from being highly concentrated in 1951 to significantly dispersed by 1991. Three factors of personal, cultural and societal are studied for their effect on the choice of residential location of the three study groups. Employment of Ukrainians during the 1950s in the automotive industry resulted in residential locations in low class neighbourhoods near the factories. A Ukrainian community developed in which social and spiritual needs were met through the establishment of traditional institutions. Over time, with no new Ukrainian immigration and increased association with mainstream society, residential concentrations of Ukrainians began to disperse.Dept. of Geography.
