Our Mission

To give Canadians,
whose heritage is German, a united voice
towards  the government, the media and
the  public at large;

To make known the
contributions that Canadians of German
heritage, and others who are sympathetic
to our cause, have made to build our
community, province and country.  
In special cases these persons are
honoured by receiving the “Heritage Award”
of the German-Canadian Congress;  

To meet regularly with representatives
of the different levels of government
and the media in order to present
the concerns of our community;  

To have a good relationship and
work together with the
German Embassy  in Ottawa
and with the
Consulate General in Toronto;  

To take a firm stand against unfair
stereotyping and
untrue accusations
against Canadians of German heritage

To take a firm stand on protecting
the rights of the individual person
within the laws of Canada
and the Human Rights Declaration
of the United Nations;  

To support clubs,
whose cultural background
is German, in their work to preserve
German heritage and traditions
and to be a link between those clubs;  

To be an information centre for persons
who have questions about German-
Canadian issues regardless where
these persons live or where they come

Over 3 Million Canadians consider
themselves of German Heritage.

Der Sommer, der Sommer,
Das ist die schönste Zeit:
Wir ziehen in die Wälder
Und durch die Au'n und Felder
Voll Lust und Fröhlichkeit.

Der Sommer, der Sommer,
Der schenkt uns Freuden viel:
Wir jagen dann und springen
Nach bunten Schmetterlingen
Und spielen manches Spiel.

Der Sommer, der Sommer,
Der schenkt uns manchen Fund:
Erdbeeren wir uns suchen
Im Schatten hoher Buchen
Und laben Herz und Mund.

Der Sommer, der Sommer,
Der heisst uns lustig sein:
Wir winden Blumenkränze
Und halten Reigentänze
Beim Abendsonnenschein.

August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben 1798-1874
Wir wünschen allen
Mitgliedern und Freunden
einen recht schönen Sommer
