Welcome to the Niagara German-Canadian Club

The Niagara German-Canadian Club is a non-profit organization that has served as the focal point for the German-Canadian community in Niagara Falls, Ontario, since 1934. Since the club’s founding we have been committed to the people of Niagara Falls through donations and functions in support of numerous causes.

The Niagara German-Canadian Club promotes the understanding of German-Canadian culture and history. Furthermore, we are dedicated to the promotion of community activities, including the promotion of sports teams, cultural endeavours and charities. Today the club enjoys the camaraderie and friendship among its members through our regular and special events.


We are finally settled in our new location at 5909 Franklin Ave., behind Fat Bastard Burritos, which is across the street from Shoppers Drug Mart on Lundy’s Lane. We are overjoyed with the new premises: they are perfect! Our Friday card players can continue to meet and we can hold our monthly board meetings.
