Social networking


  • The German-Canadian Association, founded in 1951, fosters the traditionally strong cultural and social links between Germany and Canada. Its work centres around regional group events, alumni networking and the Work and Travel Program. There are regional groups in Baden-Württemberg, Berlin-Brandenburg, Bremen, Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Upper Bavaria, Rhine-Ruhr, Rhineland, Rhine-Main and Trier.
  • Friends of Canada get together at the MapleTable, a monthly meeting in the Hamburg region.
  • Canada Meets Germany (CMG) is an interdisciplinary leadership program for young Germans and Canadians from a variety of fields including business, politics, academia, science, culture, and the media to meet and exchange ideas. The Canada meets Germany Alumni Forum was founded to sustain a solid and lasting exchange among CMG members and to organize study tours in Germany and Canada.
  • The Quebec-German Association, “AQA”, was founded in 1995 with the aim to create a network of friendship between Quebec people in their country of adoption. The newly arrived may benefit from the experience their compatriots have gained in Germany and become more easily familiarised with its culture and intercultural communication. Regular meetings and a newsletter, among others, contribute to creating new contacts between members of the Association and to maintaining Quebec habits, language and traditions in Germany.Association québécoise en Allemagne
