New transatlantic highway between Canada and Germany

Canada and Germany have much in common – and much to learn from each other. There is already a strong bond defining this transatlantic connection. But it needs to be nurtured, renewed and reimagined continually in order to grow and bear even more fruit. With an eye to engaging the next generation in this exchange, a new campaign has been created: So German! Si Allemand !


On July 1, 2015 Germany's diplomatic representations in Canada underwent further restructuring of their consular services.

The Embassy in Ottawa and the Consulate General in Montreal no longer accept passport applications and have ceased to offer consular services altogether. 

The German Consulate General in Vancouver is continuing to offer limited consular services.

Please refer to our service overview for detailed information.

Puffin man on a mission: Jürgen and Elfie Schau, Berlin, Germany and Witless Bay, Newfoundland

Jürgen Schau leads a double life – and he doesn`t do anything to hide it. The people in Germany, and especially in Berlin where Jürgen comes from, would be aghast if they saw this man on the East coast of Canada: He is traipsing around at night, in a weird outfit, carrying a torch in one gloved hand, a butterfly net and a basket in the other -  and waders up to his waist.
