Abstract. The article deals with the discussion of the mission and prospects of the Ukrainian World Congress that took place among the Western Ukrainian diaspora on the eve of and during the Sixth World Congress of Free Ukrainians in 1993 in Toronto, Canada. Changes in the priorities of the Ukrainian diaspora due to new socio-political circumstances, in particular the establishment of the independent Ukrainian state, have become an important stage in the ideological and structural restructuring of the UWC and have given a new impetus to implementation of new projects of the Ukrainian diaspora in support of Ukraine.

Keywords: Ukrainian diaspora, Ukrainian World Congress, the Sixth World Congress of Free Ukrainians, State independence of Ukraine, Yuri Shymko, Dmytro Cipyvnyk.
