Lech family from Poland

I am researching my Grandfather's line which we recently discovered was Lech. We have always known his surname as Leach, but his parents were actually LECH. According to my great grandmother's death registration in BC, Canada she was born Anastasia Bjaiko Aug 20 1904 in Wisloczek Poland. Her husband was Harry Lech b. Jan 15 1901 in Poland. His father's name was Wasyl Lech. I think they were married there abt 1920. They apparently went to Ontario and then on to Alberta bef 1931 as my grandfather was b in Owl River, Alberta in 1931. They had a farm at Owl River were they ran a store and also had a parcel of land abt 3 miles away. They had ten children and abt 1945 Harry and Annie came to BC. Harry was placed in the Crease Clinic, apparently suffering from shell shock. Annie died in 1967 in Vancouver and Harry died in 1975.
We do not know much more about them. I am waiting for Harry and Anastasia's Naturalization Records which should arrive any day to see what else may be there. Does any of this sound like it could be connected? I have been searching this line for 6 yrs with just recently discovering the info abt their last name and nationality.
