About Saskatchewan German Council
Founded in 1984, the Saskatchewan German Council is a registered volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting German culture, language, customs, traditions and interests for the benefit of all Saskatchewan people.
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 10 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.
