It will meet in Portage la Prairie, which is in the Ukrainian Catholic Archeparchy of Winnipeg, from 9 to 16 September 2012.  The Ukrainian Catholic Bishops of Canada invited the Synod to hold its annual meeting in Canada to mark the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first Ukrainian Catholic Bishop in Canada, Blessed Bishop Nykyta Budka. Around 35 to 40 Ukrainian Catholic Bishops will participate, including His Beatitude Sviatoslav Shevchuk, Major Archbishop of Kiev-Halych (Ukraine) who is the primate of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.  During his visit to Canada, Archbishop Shevchuk will be received by the Plenary Assembly of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) which he will address. He is also making pastoral visits in each of the five Ukrainian Catholic Eparchies across Canada
