Actor who has worked extensively in theatre, film and television for over thirty years. Lubomir Mykytiuk was born in Ukraine, and immigrated with his parents to Montreal at the age of five. He attended Loyola College, majoring in mathematics, and studied theatre at New York University.
He was one of the co-creators of the play Paper Wheat (1977), originating a soliloquy while juggling and eating pieces out of a dinner roll to illustrate the farmer's share of wheat prices, after bites by the middleman and the government, and he toured with it across Canada.

In October, 2001, he performed in the Centaur production of Art.
Mykytiuk is probably best known for his role in the TV series, North of 60, which ran for ten years.
