For over three centuries, German immigrants have come to Canada. These bold pioneers and explorers left for Canada with memories and their culture. German immigration did not stop with the dawn of the Twentieth Century, in fact, it increased.

Turmoil in Europe from the First and Second World Wars, followed by the uncertainty of the Cold War, brought new waves of German immigrants to Canada. Many of these immigrants sought a fresh start, an opportunity to do well, a chance to acquire an education. Some were forced to emigrate to Canada in order to make a good life for themselves.
