Statement by Minister Hussen on German Heritage Month

Canadian Heritage

Today marks the beginning of German Heritage Month, a celebration of the remarkable contributions Canadians of German heritage have made and continue to make to our country.

Canada is the proud home of more than 3 million people of German descent, representing one of the largest cultural communities in our country. Whether it’s through business, the sciences, sport or the arts, Canadians of German heritage continue to have an important impact on our society. Events like Oktoberfest are one of the many ways this community celebrates its culture.
