German Migration to Canada

  • The following exhibition is the result of collaboration between several schools and museums in Germany and Canada, with both public and private sector support. The thematic components contained in the exhibition were chosen by the participating organizations and are by no means intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the area of migration between Germany and Canada. Instead we hope that through highlighting selected aspects on the theme of German migration to Canada, visitors will be encouraged to discover and further explore the spirit of community which has resulted through the shared history between these two nations.
