How Does Someone Born in Sask in 1925 get Ukrainian Citizenship?

I ran across this public art record of employment at a shipyard in North Vancouver today. There are a series of employment record cards in the display, with some visible to the public. I assume families were contacted to get permission for this display, as some of the details are private.

Anyway, one of the visible records is for a fellow who was born in Saskatchewan in 1925, yet who is listed as having Ukrainian citizenship. I found that a bit odd, since my Dad was born in Saskatchewan of Ukrainian descent in 1927, and he was never a citizen of Ukraine.
