Maurice POLLACK (of Quebec, 1885-1968) and his ancestors?

Stephen Cohen

A few days ago a cousin told me that she heard Maurice POLLACK (born 1885 in Kanele, Ukraine; emigrated to Canada 1902; died 1968 in Quebec City, Canada) was a relative.

Maurice was the founder of Pollack's Department Store in Quebec, and ran a philanthropic organization. I have gleaned from various newspaper articles a bit about his descendants, but NOT his ancestors.

Does anyone have ideas or knowledge of his ancestry (parents, aunts, uncles, etc.) so that I might (or might not) link his POLLACK family to my POLYAK family of Kodnya (near Zhytomyr), Ukraine?
