The eparch of Winnipeg, Metropolitan Lawrence Huculak, is metropolitan for the Canadian church. The eparchies of Toronto and New Westminster are currently vacant and are administered by the eparchs of Saskatoon and Edmonton. The UGCC bishops are part of the synod of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in Kyiv, Ukraine together with other bishops in the Ukrainian Catholic diaspora. They are also members of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB). The Ukrainian Catholic Church is the largest of the 23 Eastern Catholic sui juris churches in communion with Rome.
