Lavery is pleased to announce that Eugene Czolij, partner at our firm, was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal on November 30, 2012 during a special awards presentation ceremony, which was organized by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.
The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to mark the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne in 1952. This distinction recognizes the significant contributions and accomplishments of Canadian citizens to a particular province or community.
Lavery is proud to salute the unrelenting commitment of Mr. Czolij in the Ukrainian community, in Montreal, throughout Canada and around the world.
Since 2008, Mr. Czolij is the President of the Ukrainian World Congress, an international coordinating body for Ukrainian communities in the diaspora representing the interests of over 20 million Ukrainians. The Ukrainian World Congress has member organizations in 33 countries and ties with Ukrainians in 14 additional countries.
