About Saskatchewan German Council

Saskatchewan German Council - Circle Logo

Founded in 1984, the Saskatchewan German Council is a registered volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the heritage, culture and interests of Saskatchewan people of German-speaking backgrounds.

The Council plays an active role in building provincial multiculturalism and the Canadian mosaic. The Council is guided in all its activities by its by-laws as well as by a comprehensive set of policies.

A Board of Directors consisting of 11 elected members meets at least twice a year to set the tone and direction for all the Council’s activities. A number of committees are in place to investigate and manage matters of special interest.
