The Federation of Danish Associations in Canada
The Danish Federation was established at Sunset Villa in Puslinch, Ontario, on June 7, 1981, with the purpose of bringing together all existing Danish organizations in Canada, to create a permanent network of cooperation. The Federation is a Club of Clubs, and it is therefore the national umbrella organization of the Danes in Canada. The Federation is made up of member organizations from across Canada – in New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon. Member organizations include congregations, churches, senior citizen homes, veterans of the Royal Danish Guards’ Associations, business men’s associations, fraternities, historical societies, museums and social clubs.

The Danish Canadian National Museum
The Danish Canadian National Museum Society was established in 1992 by Danes from across Canada meeting in Innisfail, Alberta at the Annual Conference of the Federation of Danish Associations in Canada. A feasibility study recommended that the Museum and Archives could be located in Dickson, Alberta and that there should be a two-phase plan. Phase One would be the development of the existing building and gardens. Phase Two would be the building of a fully modern National Museum and Archives.
Canadian Nordic Society
Based in Canada’s National Capital Region, the Canadian Nordic Society celebrates the links and common interests between Canada and the Nordic countries: Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Finland. Since 1963 the CNS has provided opportunities to share, learn about and celebrate Nordic culture and history and Canada’s Nordic connections.
Danes Worldwide blev stiftet 30. april 1919 under navnet Dansk Samvirke, og blev dermed det første organiserede bindeled mellem danskere ude og hjemme. Udvandringen havde på det tidspunkt været i gang i næsten 70 år, men forbindelserne mellem Danmark og de udeboende landsmænd var stadig individuelle. Formålet med foreningen har fra første færd været at styrke forbindelsen mellem danskere ude og hjemme samt at udbrede kendskabet til Danmark i udlandet.
