It is the initiative of the city hall to provide the dwellers of the city with this opportunity. Many people from Ternopil immigrated to North America or found jobs abroad in the last decade. This promotes connections with other countries and increases the needs of dwellers to have Wi-Fi available everywhere. Many immigrants regularly visit Ternopil and need online connection to keep in touch with relatives, friends and employers abroad.
Historically, Galicia was the area from which Ukrainian immigrants moved to Canada and the USA in the XIX century. Their photos are still shown by Western media and we can see those exotic fur coats, chests with their belongings and other fascinating things.
Immigrants and foreign workers look very different nowadays. When visiting Ukraine, they are able to sit in a public park and send photos to friends in North America from their laptops.
This year the Ukrainian Canadian community celebrated the 120th anniversary of Ukrainian pioneer settlement in Canada.
