Boian, Alberta​




Boian, is an unincorporated community in Alberta. It is the oldest Romanian settlement in Canada.


The first Romanian colons arrived here in late 19th century, most of them coming from Bukovina. The community was named for Boian, the Romanian village in Bukovina, from where the settlers originated.

Today, the Romanian school is a museum showcasing Romanian immigration in Alberta, photos of the first Romanian settlers in the area and the typical Romanian farmer's life in rural Canada. (Wikipedia)
