About us

Promote cultural meetings and contacts between Bavaria and Canada

We support meetings between Germans and Canadians and Canada fans through diverse events (lectures on current topics, exhibitions, Canadian speakers and artists). Your ideas and your help are very welcome.

In Bavaria we count approx. 200 members.  All are related to Canada – be it the fact that they were born in Canada, worked there, or appreciate Canada as a travel destination.

Provide economic insight

It is difficult in Germany to stay up to date about economical and fiscal policy issues in Canada. Therefore we will invite competent speakers from these areas from time to time to bridge the gap between the two nations.

Encourage students – exchange students

The advertising to our universities for our successful DKG students work program (WSP) is another focus. Each year, up to 100 German students, get the opportunity, through us, to work for three months in Canada and to travel.  At our events we also meet Canadian students who reside in Germany.

Convey information

The DKG tries to answer questions concerning Canada or refers to competent authorities. We are actively supported by the Canadian Consulate / Embassy of Canada in Berlin.

Our members receive regular information about Canada through the “DKG-Journal”. It is published quarterly with a circulation of 1,200 exemplars.
