History / Biographical
The Canadian Doukhobor Society (CDS) was established in Salmo, B.C on January 1, 1967. Their aim was the unification of all Doukhobor on the basis of Doukhobor principles. The organization supported and promoted learning of Russian language, its own distance learning system, periodicals dealing with Doukhobor education and culture. The Doukhobors emigrated from Russia in the late 19th century. The Doukhobors originally settled in Saskatchewan and later branched into British Columbia. In 1915-17, the Christian Community of Universal Brotherhood established a new colony of 13,500 acres near the towns of Cowley and Lundbreck in Alberta on the main southern line of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Alberta settlement was an important transit centre for production of grains, vegetables and hay for the horse logging and orchard operations in B.C., and for the natural advantage of stock raising. The Doukhobor that lived in South-western Alberta came from the British Columbia settlements.
